#TravelingThroughLearning – ISRAEL Unit!

Israel is a country along the Mediterranean Sea located in the Middle East. It is most common referred to as the biblical Holy Land by Jews, Christians and Muslims. Since I decided to start #travelingthroughlearning in December, I thought Israel would make an excellent start because of it’s association with the Christian Christmas story and the Jewish Hanukkah.

Thank you for all my followers who participated, sent in suggestions and feedback during this unit. We had a lot of fun! 🙂


  • Placemat Sign & Flag of Israel – This full color printable shows some interesting stats of the country as well as some pictures of major landmarks. I like to put it in a plastic sheet protector and use it as a placemat for meals. It is excellent to promote learning at the dinner table. This also includes a Israeli flag to post as part of your unit.
  • Map Outline & Major Cities – We cut out an outline of Israel in foam paper and used map pins to attach the city tags to show where the different major cities were.
