Super Simple Geography

All Grades
This idea came from a video I watched on teaching Geography using the Charlotte Mason method, and it's so simple it almost feels like it's not enough. But let me tell ya, it works! I used this method with my kids while teaching them the 50 states. They learned them all quickly, without even realizing that they were memorizing the map.

I gave my kids a blank map that I printed from d-maps.com (this site also has some great printables: Seterra). I had them fill in one state from memory (it's best to do the state you live in first), then I asked them if they knew any other states from memory and they would fill those in. When they had labeled all that they could remember, I gave them a map that already had the states labeled and had them choose two more to label on their blank maps.

We did this 3-4 times each week. You can do this with any map! Super simple.

Geography Now
I think the host talks a little too fast, but he does manage to pack a TON of information into very short videos. Used together with some notebooking pages (like these from Notebooking Fairy) these would make quick and easy geography lessons. He is going through every country in the world alphabetically. So far he has 151 videos created!
