Our Geography Project Begins

First of all, I want to give a big thanks to all my readers who have provided us information that will assist us in our summer geography lesson. Currently, we have 21 locations from around the world. What started out as a simple geography lesson will turn into a geography, history, science, arts and crafts lesson by the time all is said and done.

Since we do school all year round (after all, learning should never stop), this will be one of our summer projects. A summer vacation across the globe from the comfort of our home. The girls will take turns selecting one of the locations provided from a hat and we’ll begin our discovery. First, finding that location on a map or globe, than learning the history of that area. Finally we’ll learn some interesting facts, find pictures and compile all our findings into books.  Naomi creating a book with information that is easy for a kindergartener to understand.  Lili creating a book with information that is easy for a 2nd grader to understand.  Along the way, I’ll have each of the girls share some of their favorite findings and put it out here for you to read. Hopefully you’ll learn something along the way as well.

We will begin our geography project this week and I want to encourage others to participate by telling us where you live. The more locations we have to study, the more we learn.

      1. Let me know if there is anything I can do to make it more interesting for you – a particular photo you would like us to take, information, maybe even a skype with Connor on what living here and learning Chinese is like. I think that what you are doing is a great idea that takes advantage of the technological age we live in.
