Learning Geography doesn't have to be dull and boring...

There are many terrific geography programs available online that will allow you to place or name all 50 U.S. States, provide access to outline maps and informative, detailed geographical orientation, which will help your children learn, and enjoy geography.

These links have provided hours of entertainment for our family. So, when the maps get ripped up out of frustration and the children have forgotten where Spain is, take a break and travel the globe from the comfort of home...

Map Reading Skills

Being raised in a family of individuals who seemingly have no natural sense of direction, I've found map reading to be an important skill. So, in our travels I like to have an extra map or two on hand for the kids to navigate with.

I provide the child with a highlighter so that he or she can map out our course ahead of time, they assume the co-pilots seat, in the front next to the driver. Of course the driver has to follow directions carefully, never making a turn unless the navigator directs the driver to do so. (That's the hard part!)

It's fun to let the kids be in charge for awhile, teaching them not only map reading skills but also how to give clear directions. Just be sure to allow extra time for your travels until your navigator perfects his craft. You could end up in some interesting destinations to be sure. Don't forget to fill up the tank. :)

Be sure to pick up a copy of Carschooling to take along in your travels, your children will be glad you did and it could be miles before you hear, "Are we there yet?"
