Geography as a subject can appear daunting to many. Here are few things, that you as parents can do at home to make Geography fun and interesting for your children.
Field Trips – Kids love to learn about places they can see, touch and hear. If you’re studying the place where you live, make geography come alive to your kids by taking them on field trips to mountains, oceans, rivers, deserts, etc. that they’ve learned about. Make geography come alive by allowing your children the opportunity to experience it first hand!
Map Work – Learning how to create and detail maps is a lot of fun! Your kids will have a great time adding rivers, mountains, borders and more to their maps as part of their geography lessons!
Photography- Photography can inspire your kids to want to learn about a particular place. Whether it’s a picture they’ve seen or a picture they took on a field trip or family vacation, if they show interest in a certain place in a photograph, make that your next geography location to study!
