What country is this? you teach geography in your homeschool?
Do you kids yearn to learn where places are?
Oh the places you'll go....can you tell we have been celebrating Dr.Seuss for the past 10 days....I feel like I am stuck in rhyming land!LOL Too many books in too many days!
But, it has brought up the subject of where places are.
We are geography lovers in this house! Our current goal is to take see if we can see all 50 States via license plates over the course of a year! My boys are always on the lookout for ones to cross off the list!
And as a homeschooling Mom, I am always on the lookout for things to change up our geography learning! Because let's face it. Learning is learning, no matter how you learn! And why, just do the same old thing day in and day out......if you do not have to!
I got a great book of all 50 States and we glean a State each week. The boys had to each research and fill out a form packet on 25 States when they were in middle school as part of their geography AND middle school writing. Now, we are adding geography spelling lists because you do need to know how to spell or close to spelling what country you are looking for, traveling to, etc. Every week, I will assign a geography list to them and they will play games until they can pass the final test on Thursdays!! And we will see where it goes! OR we go!LOL
How do you incorporate Geography into your homeschool?
Happy Homeschooling!!
