My Homeschool World Exploration Reading List

Hi there! I hope you are all enjoying your summer and staying cool.

Today, I'm sharing my reading list for World Exploration. I based this list on books I currently own from Book Shark's Eastern Hemisphere, and then I added in a whole lot of other fun titles. This is my 6th grader's reading list for this year.

Please read more about how we will use Book Shark in a relaxed way this fall here.
