Create your own passport by printing out these pages and following the
assembly instructions here:
1. Fold the blue cover sheet in half vertically so that the blue printed portion
is on the outside, as this will act as a cover for your passport booklet. Fold
the remaining 6 sheets also in half vertically, but the opposite direction, so
that the printed portion is on the inside, as these are your inside pages.
2. Now follow one of the two steps below:
a. Using a glue stick, glue the pages together so that page 2 is glued to
page 3, 4 to 5, 6 to 7, 8 to 9, and 10 to 11. Then glue stick the cover
to the booklet by attaching the front cover to page 1 and the back
cover to page 12. Let it dry and you are ready to use your booklet.
b. Alternately, you can leave your book unassembled for now. The
reason for this would be that you can use more than one page for
each continent, as I will explain below. Then once all of the pages
are filled in, you can then glue the finished book together with all of
the pages that have been written on, giving your writer plenty of
freedom to write at will.
How to Use this Booklet
Your passport booklet, whether assembled or as loose pages, can become your
mini-journal of your “travels” throughout our world. Use the pages to record
highlights – the facts that you have found most interesting – as you read through
the pages of Expedition Earth.
There are pages for each continent that you study – Africa, Asia, Europe,
Oceania, North America and South America. You can record short quotes and
highlights on these pages from your reading. If you like to write quite a bit, then
you may want to follow the instructions under “b” above, so that you can write
all that you want. If you don’t enjoy writing, then print out one page for each
continent and follow instructions “a” above.
