Geography is Fun!
Travel God's World Geography by Meredith Curtis, a unit study/consumable worktext, will take you on an adventure around the world!
Let’s travel around God’s World together, exploring each continent and investigating the world’s biomes (mountains, deserts, tundra, grasslands, forests, jungles, islands, volcanoes, rivers). We’ll need our passports and boarding passes (included in this worktext). We will fly, drive, and sail to exciting destinations, meeting families around the world.
Research is fun! We will choose one country from each major continent to examine her landforms, climate, flora, fauna, resources, economy, government, religion, and culture; and present a report to our family or co-op class.
Maps are fun! We fill in blank outline maps of each continent, as well as a variety of thematic maps. We will learn about God’s world with population, language, religion, climate, and time zone maps.
Written in a conversation style, you will meet families around the world as you explore different nations and how they live.
