A couple months back, we hosted a homeschooling guest blogger, Kerry Jones, who shared her strategies for teaching geography to students of all ages.
I recently came across a punchy post from another homeschooling geography maven–Mrs. G–on the Pioneer Woman website. Not sure what the “G” stands for–I doubt it’s “geography”– but Mrs. G sure knows how to write a witty, engaging beat on the topic! I think all–geography buffs and novices, homeschoolers and public schoolers alike–will relate to some element of her experiences and musings. She incorporates some great visuals (see above), along with geography curriculum and resource suggestions, and a literature list. Even more recommendations can be found within the impressively massive comments forum. Thanks Melody C (#40) for the MWW shout-out, and also Mrs. G, for the many referrals to National Geographic materials.
