Over the years of homeschooling, we have discovered all kinds of products, maps, and books that have enriched our world geography studies. We have gathered our favorites and created our own collection of excellent and inspiring geography resources.
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.
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 piece by piece with living books, mapping, researching, missionary studies, and unit study fun.
We love living books and literature set in beautiful places. We love to go on adventures through the pages of a book.
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.
A Child’s Geography
This geography curriculum series is delightful. The first 2 volumes were written by Ann Voskamp and the rest are written by Terri Johnson. Both of these Christians authors are gentle writers that bring their readers on a voyage to exciting places and sights around the world. Some of the different volumes include: A Child’s Geography: Explore His Earth, A Child’s Geography: Explore the Holy Land, and A Child’s Geography: Explore Medieval Kingdoms.
This game is free to play online. It’s easy and fun. My kids loved it! I always play it before I start teaching a year of geography. It’s a great refresher and fun way to learn all the countries of the world. You can play Seterra here.
