While mooching around the internet for inspiration I hit this fabulous website called Confessions of a Homeschooler. Erica, whose site it is has been home-schooling for a while now and therefore has some amazing resources. Most of them are free but she has some pay for ones as well, including a complete geography curriculum.
Now I was always terrible at geography and I never got to really learn about where places are, their cultures etc., so I thought this is not only brilliant for Elsa, but also for me to learn more as well.
So I downloaded it, printed off the first 5 weeks of it and away we went.
Firstly, we made a passport to add the stamps of the flags of the various countries we will be visiting. (COAH is an American site so I downloaded the inserts from there and the front and back cover from Twinkl so we have a British passport).
We continued with week 1, which was learning the different continents and oceans. We also made a salt dough earth and labelled it with the different, oceans, continents and countries we would be learning about over the next year or so.
We are missing out some parts of the curriculum but are following most of it and have done several countries so far and we will be blogging about them soon.
Elsa is loving this curriculum.
