Great Geo-gift Ideas!

Gifts_xmas.jpgFor the past several holiday seasons, we have plugged our favorite geography gifts. We share them again this year throughout the December newsletter and here on the blog. After all, we like to think we’re experts on the topic! This time around, however, we thought we’d mix it up by stirring some new voices into the holiday mix. So we asked our favorite teachers and activist parents: What’s on your shopping list?

We’ve combined our favorite responses into this delicious holiday list. Check out our Quick Guide for a list of these great ideas; then check out the comments for extra info. Thanks to everyone who contributed!
