Free Geography and Cultures Curriculum

June 14, 2011 at 6:04 am 7 comments

I wanted to let you know that I’ve competed the next curriculum, geography and cultures. I’ve posted it over at the Links blog (Links to All Things Free for Homeschoolers), but I will put it on the Free Stuff! page too.

As you know this was our history/social studies topic for the past year. I did it one country a week, but you can pace yourself however you like. It’s set up a little differently since so many things could be done with every country. I didn’t want to just repeat myself, so in the beginning I have listed what and where to study for each country and a list of things to do with the country (lapbook, make a commercial, etc.). Then in the main part of the curriculum I listed specific resources for each country.

For reading there are folktales for each part of the world as well as missionary stories and several novels. For the first time I did list some novels that you could get from the library. I hate to do it because I know there are others like me who have no access to a library, but I also want to help those of you who do with some hints of great books that would relate. These are not necessary. There will always be something to read everyday without extra books from the library. But if you have that option, you may want to use those for your reading.

Okay, have fun. Now I can focus on the materials I’m preparing for the coming school year. We’ve been slacking off this month. The kids are only working on their novels and then basically unschooling the rest of school time šŸ™‚ My husband’s anxious for them to get back to a full school schedule, so I gotta finish getting ready! Lots planned. We’ll see what I accomplish.

    Aren’t you sweet, but it’s not much. I just organized the links to put them in a form that some people might find useful. I have other projects I’m working on too. I’m mean, what else am I going to do between 10PM and 6AM. šŸ™‚

    thanks for this I was just talking with my husband about how i thought we could be doing more for geography. Did you feel that one week for each country was enough time or were you rushed? this has been the main sticking point for us we just can’t decide how long to spend in each place.

      It was enough for us. Only once or twice did we take longer on a country. But you don’t have to have it all planned out by week. I make a flow for our year and then we just move through it. I don’t make a plan by days, just by order. That way I’m never behind šŸ™‚

    I ran across your replica of the Jamestown fort. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for one of those and, unfortunately, the link you posted back then is no longer active Any chance you still have that to email to me? Please! šŸ™‚
