I am looking for a world geography curriculum or resources that I can implement during the summer.

My 11 yo is in a private school and thriving, but I do see a gap in this area.

She is an excellent reader. Textbook or computer based. I am open to suggestions.

Thank you in advance.

You also might want to check out the National Geographic Geography Bee site.

looks quite promising. Do you use it or have used it yourself?

Would you mind sharing your experience?

Thank you so much again.

I sort of used it. I just took bits and pieces of it to add to whatever we were doing. Mostly the coloring of maps to locate countries/capitals/water and then one or two of the trailblazing activities. I didn't do the flashcards.

My younger one was always into geography and in school. In his school Geo. Bee, in 6th he was 7th, 7th was 2nd, and 3rd in 8th. He used the website to practice.

Someone else posted somewhere more about how they used it too.

Hope this helps a little.
