Learn About Russia – Study Resources

Russian Flag



I decided to make a bigger Russia study to go along with the resources I put together for the Winter Olympics. The one I made before so was just a few resources that we used. Not very big at all! LOL

As well, as the resources I have provided, there are so many other branches to study when looking at Russia: music, ballet, art, literature, history, architecture. Go ahead and follow those rabbit trails! 😉


As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.
