Hi everyone! This isn’t my typical blog post!
I spent a lot of time creating a world geography curriculum for my kids to use this year, and I love it so much that I wanted to share it.
This is meant to be used with the National Geographic Kids World Atlas, 4th Edition. (It’s available on Amazon for $14 for the soft cover. It looks like the 5th edition came out a couple months ago, and that one is a little cheaper. I’m guessing it would work with this curriculum as well, but the page numbers might be off.) I would also purchase a globe and maybe a poster sized map of the world to put on your wall.
Now, I didn’t actually “write” most of this. I copied and pasted stuff from the internet, copied some stuff out of the almanac, and downloaded some free worksheets and outline maps. But I put it all together in an organized way, and I made a nice country project for the end of the year. It contains 26 “lessons.” My plan is to do 1 per week.
I’ve focused on Asia, Africa, and Europe, because that’s where we are in our history lessons. But I have map work and some info in here for 6 of the 7 continents. (Sorry Antarctica!)
I might do the same thing next year with a focus on the Americas, and maybe more “physical” info like land, climate, and vegetation. This year I focused on “political” information like population, economies, and food.
Anyway, I hope someone else is able to get some use out of it. It took me too long to put it together for it to just be a one family thing! Click the “free stuff” icon below to download the pdf. (This won’t sign you up to a mailing list! It’s just a free download!)
