Geography is one of our favorite subjects! We love to explore the world and learn all about other places in the world and how people live there.
Over the years, we have enjoyed many different resources and created our own!
We love living books and literature set in beautiful places. We love to go on adventures through the pages of a book.
We enjoy songs that help us memorize geography facts and games that help us remember country names and capitals.
We have enjoyed living textbooks and created our own curriculum with unit study fun.
We have enjoyed cooking and baking from around the world. Unit studies have been a blast, too!
Finally, we love to read and research so we can learn more about other places.
Here are some of our very favorite geography resources. We hope you will enjoy them, too.
