Inexpensive one year world geography?


Recommended Posts


:iagree: Great as a guide! We change some things around a bit since I'm not the most crafty & have added some books from our library:






They love the passport & flag info, but mine are 7, 5, & 3 so things like population etc, are a bit meaningless to them right now. I don't want to overcomplicate it for them! :001_smile: I added the above books to "Children Just Like Me" because they love learning/seeing the cultural aspects. It seems very easy to adapt to a variety of ages with the addition of age-appropriate library books & maybe adding to the mapping activity.


Also, I am hoping to make at least 1 recipe from each country we visit as our "hands-on" activity. (although this hasn't quite started and we're almost out of asia :blush:...but, hey, it's still a goal) The author has posted on her blog some of their own experiences through the curriculum. All in all, it's been really neat to see our little ones grow in understanding that there is a much bigger world out there than our little state.


Enjoy your geography trip!

I have a friend who is doing Expedition Earth with her K'er and 2nd and they LOVE it!! May be a bit young for your olders though..


I own(not using yet) Around the World in 180 Days by Sherri Payne that I purchased used for under $20 that might be better for your olders. It is more into research and notebooking and stuff.. Too much for my little one yet..


We are doing Winter Promise Children Around the World(roughly) this year but it is more of a culture thing than geography.. at least not in -depth geo.


Found an old thread in my bookmarks discussing this too. http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?t=288467


Hope you find something!
