Marvelous Monday- GEOGRAPHY

 

 


We haven't always studied geography as a subject separate from history because the history programs we've used include mapwork that I thought was sufficient to familiarize my students with the globe.

However, I had been reading Ann Voskamp's lovely blog for awhile and was so very curious about her geography curriculum, A Child's Geography.  We began with A Child's Geography: Explore the Holy Land because it lined up nicely with The Mystery of History, Volume I. From the get-go, I loved that Ann's book was written with her beautiful style and voice.

I'm not going to spend a lot of time telling you the contents of the books, because her site does a better job than I could.  But I will tell you that both volumes are an easy addition to a homeschool with multiple levels and ages to teach.  This year I used A Child's Geography with my 6th grader, 4th grader, and 2nd grader, and it was another great addition to our Circle Time.



Oh my!  I just took a peek at Cheryl's Marvelous Monday post and she has far more to say about geography than  I do!  You'll get your money's worth at her blog :D
