Homeschool Geography

Do you tend to put geography on the back burner thinking math, language, and science are more important? The study of geography gives the student a greater understanding of our world. Students will be better prepared to comprehend topics impacting our planet such as climate change, water issues, global warming, climate change, places, and more.

Ten Reasons To Study Geography
  1. To discover your neighborhood
  2. To explore economic patterns
  3. To delve into ways in which cultures — past and present — leave their imprint on the land and landscape
  4. To learn about urban life
  5. To examine the movements of people across space
  6. To recognize geopolitical patterns
  7. To glimpse into the ways in which human relationships to places, spaces, and environments are shaped by — and, in turn, shape — class, ethnic, race, and gender identities
  8. To map the world
  9. To locate and explore natural hazards, biogeography, climate change, and earthquakes
  10. To employ the newest technologies of geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing and satellite imagery to better understand the world's constantly changing natural and human landscapes
This back to school year try mixing a little fun into your homeschool geography lessons by adding geography games into the mix.
