How to Teach (and Learn) Geography – Classical Conversations at Home

I found this article on teaching kids geography to complement Classical Conversations and I became hooked on the subject:

A Simple Way to Learn Geography 

Then I found this brilliant idea for helping kids make maps from Homegrown Learners.

Visualize World Geography

I told my curriculum connection about these fabulous ideas and she asked me if I’d ever heard of Visualize World Geography. Of course, I hadn’t! She explained that while it was an expensive curriculum, she found that it quickly and easily taught her kids the names of countries that most adults don’t know. I found the best deal (and reviews) of it at Homeschool Buyers Co-op. If you purchase used, make sure you are getting the DVDs as these are apparently the best aspect of the program.

The Little Man In the Map: With Clues To Remember All 50 States

Once I was sold on the visualizing method of learning geography, I was pleased to find this inexpensive resource for teaching kids the states.

Uzzingo Middle School Program

More and more homeschooling parents are looking for online curriculum that allows their older students to be independent. Barbie of My Freshly Brewed Life shares a review of Uzinggo–a curriculum I’d never heard of, that works for her middle school daughter.
