Exploring Countries and Cultures Curriculum Guide

Take a trip around the world and explore diverse countries and cultures while learning geography and being challenged by true stories of missionaries. Experience different cultures by preparing traditional food, making native crafts, and listening to ethnic music.

Our easy-to-teach unit study includes a teacher's manual with daily lesson plans and all required books for Bible, geography, science, art, and music.

Supplement these with optional picture books and information books from the library for the countries you study. Library books are general resources and you will not need to find specific titles, although we list resources we have found helpful. (For classroom use, please contact us for special ordering information.)

Exploring Countries and Cultures is designed for use with 3rd-8th graders and 2nd graders with older siblings in the program.

If you own the first edition of ECC, there is an upgrade option available.

Teacher's Manual:

  • Daily lesson plans are in an easy-to-use weekly chart format.
  • Charts list each subject with page numbers of books to read and instructions for using Student Sheets. Many activities will be suitable for all ages; additional activities are suggested for older students. Many simple hands-on activities are included in the Teacher's Manual to reinforce the study of geography. We do the lesson planning for you so you have more time to enjoy teaching!


  • True stories from Hero Tales of godly men and women and the character traits they portrayed as they served as missionaries.
  • Weekly information about different ethnic groups around the world and their specific prayer needs, using Window on the World.
  • Weekly memory verses and daily readings from Matthew.


  • Develop a love for reading using "living" books from our excellent library list of picture books, fiction, and non-fiction for each country you study. We list the very best books we have read, but none are required.


  • Maps and globes are explored with Children's Atlas of God's World, Classroom Atlas, Maps and Globes, and a world wall map, as well as additional hands-on activities.
  • Easy-to-use full-color Geography Game teaches country names and locations.
  • Vocabulary focuses on geographic terms as students make illustrated vocabulary cards using Geography From A to Z.
  • Research skills are developed through the study of continents in Exploring World Geography.
  • Hands-on activities (cooking, flag making, passport, etc.) to explore 15 countries using A Trip Around the World and our Teacher's Manual. Library books provide enrichment for country topics that you study.

Let me start by saying that this is no ordinary curriculum...I couldn't wait to see what they would come up with in terms of a geography curriculum, and I was totally blown away. Following the teachings of Charlotte Mason, with their own uniquely developed ideas for unit studies, Marie and David have produced a geography unit study package that is one of the best I have seen in every way...

The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

Exploring Countries and Cultures does a terrific job teaching world geography and is helping us to become sensitive to the need of Jesus in our world.

I just wanted to let you know what a great first year we're having with MFW! Our children (12 & 9) were in public school until this year, so I was really nervous. The Teacher's Manual is so organized, and we love how every day begins with Bible reading.

The Cakchiquel man became indignant when Cam offered him a tract in Spanish. "Do you have one in Cakchiquel?" he asked. "There are none, I'm sorry," replied Cam. "Well," retorted the man, "if your God is so great, why can't he speak my language?"

In one decisive moment, Cameron Townsend understood that God had called him to translate the Bible into the language of his Guatemalan friends. For Cam, the obstacles were small when compared to the growing reward of helping the diverse people of Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru read God's life-changing Word for themselves.

Quick on his feet and slow to give up, Cam started Wycliffe Bible Translators with the dream of making the Good News available in every language. Since 1942, Wycliffe has translated Scripture into hundreds of languages, spreading God's Word to people all over the world.

Amy Carmichael stood on the deck of the steamer, waving good-bye once again to her old friend Robert Wilson. How could she have known she would never see him or the British Isles again? Amy was certain God had called her to India. Indeed! India would be home for the rest of her life.

Amy's life was marked by a simple, determined obedience to God, regardless of circumstances. Her story and legacy are stunning reminders of the impact of one person who will fear God and nothing else.

Driven by love and compassion, and sustained by faith and determination, Amy Carmichael defied the cruel barriers of India's caste system. The story of this young woman from Northern Ireland is a brilliant, sparkling example of God's love generously poured out to "the least of these among us."

Seven-year-old Nate Saint peered wide-eyed over the cockpit of his older brother Sam's Challenger biplane. The eastern Pennsylvania countryside was spread out neatly below him like a fine tablecloth. Nate was determined to remember every moment of this first high-flying adventure.

Flying soon captured Nate's heart. His air service ministry to isolated missionaries put him on a path of destiny that would ultimately end with a final airplane flight with four missionary friends to the "Palm Beach" landing strip in the jungles of Ecuador.

The men's lives given that day not only opened a door to the gospel for the unreached Acucas; it has been said that possibly no single event of the twentieth century awakened more hearts to God's call to serve in missions.

George Muller ISBN:9781576581452

GLadys Aylward ISBN: 9781576580196

George Muller stared at the beggar girl. She was no older than five and was piggybacking her little brother. Her mother had died in the cholera epidemic sweeping England. Her father had never returned from the mines. Standing in the muddy street, this little girl gave a face to Bristol's countless orphans.

With scarcely enough food or money for his own family, George Muller opened his heart and home. Sustained by God's provision, the Muller house "Breakfast Club" of thirty orphans grew to five large houses that ultimately over ten thousand children would call home.

George Muller trusted God with a depth rarely seen. His faith and generosity set a standard for Christians of all generations.

As improbable as it seemed, Gladys Aylward was certain God had called her to China as a missionary. But now, at age twenty-seven, she was being dismissed from missionary training school for failing her Bible class.

Without formal education or a missionary organization to back her, Gladys raised her own finances for the overland trip that would bring her to the country and people that God had etched so deeply on her heart...China!

What follows is an amazing adventure of faith and determination. Gladys Aylward, a housemaid from England, dared to trust God in the face of dire and seemingly hopeless circumstances. Her life is one of the truly great missionary stories of our era.

The lion's jaws gripped David Livingstone's arm. Razor-sharp teeth pierced his flesh as the lion savagely shook David in the air like a rag doll. A gunshot rang out. "God help us," David moaned, as the lion dropped him and turned to charge David's friend Mebalwe.

With the heart of an explorer and the passion of an evangelist, David Livingstone mapped vast, unexplored areas of Africa, sharing the gospel with whomever he encountered. His stamina, perseverance, and dogged determination created the legacy of a trailblazing explorer with an undying hunger to make Christ known wherever his steps led him.

David Livingstone's captivating adventures and tireless zeal continue to inspire countless men and women to bring the gospel message of God's love to those souls who have never heard.

Living with the Motilone Indians since 1961, Olson has won the friendship of four Colombian presidents and has appeared before the United Nations.

Katie Davis Majors

ISBN: 9781451612097

What would cause an eighteen-year-old old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disobey and disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother's heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because the rest of them think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person but didn't know any of the language?

A passion to follow Jesus.

Katie Davis Majors left over Christmas break of her senior year for a short mission trip to Uganda and her life was turned completely inside out. She found herself so moved by the people of Uganda and the needs she saw that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, adopted thirteen children in Uganda and has established a ministry, Amazima, that feeds and sends hundreds more to school while teaching them the Word of Jesus Christ.

Kisses from Katie invites readers on a journey of radical love down the red dirt roads of Uganda. You'll laugh and cry with Katie as she follows Jesus into the impossible and finds joy and beauty beneath the dust. Katie and her children delight in saying yes to the people God places in front of them and challenge readers to do the same, changing the world one person at a time.
