At that moment, I decided that my children would learn better geography skills than I possessed. So I've come up with this study program for them to do. The wonderful thing is that this program can/will be used for years as they can do as many levels each month as they wish.
I have a blank world map hanging on the wall that we use to test with.
Each month, I print out the sheet corresponding to that month's study and then I give them a blank map to fill in themselves. It gives them ownership of what they are doing. I designed the program to go over countries, capitals, vocabulary terms, oceans, lakes, rivers, mountains, deserts. Here's a look at month one and two. September is a short month because we're getting into the swing of things so that only has two levels. If your child knows these already you can move onto level two. I've designed a ten month program.
Level one – Back to Basics
Month two-North America
