Let's Go Geography: A Review
This is a very hands-on curriculum geared towards K-4th grade and we can attest to that! The activities are easily modified for age and regardless of skill, there were plenty of activities for everyone! If you do the entire lesson as designed, each should take about an hour. We started at the beginning where we focused on the Northeast, Hawaii and Canada. This gave us the chance to incorporate our recently acquired goodies from Hawaii that the grandparents had just brought back to us. This was a great example of learning about a place in multiple different formats from curriculum and regular life!
From there we skipped around and below is our craft from Sweden that both kids really enjoyed making!
Sprinkled throughout the lessons are breaks and review lessons. The review weeks include more new content in new formats that goes over information already covered thus far in the curriculum. Over all the different chapters and types of lessons, I started to think of so many different ways to implement this curriculum beyond the recommended full three years. You could isolate one aspect - like crafts or music - and learn about more places in a week just through that category. As another curriculum touches on different places, this could easily be used as a supplement. It provides lots of ways to reinforce learning on multiple planes. Whatever the case, we found Let's Go Geography useful for any classroom and certain a great resource over time. Check out what other people thought by reading their reviews below.
