geography activities, but don't usually cover it as a separate subject. Rather it is discussed in context with other subjects. When studying history typically one week is set aside to focus on the map for the region we are covering. If we are reading about an artist or composer we will use the map to locate his/her town and country.
That being said, I have found a few resources that work great when covering geography separately. We love A Child's geography of the World. It is an older book but written in story format, and very entertaining. Unfortunately since it's out of print it can be difficult to obtain. Seterra is an on-line geography quiz game that's free to download. Mozart, The Wonder Boy is a good book to read while studying European geography and Mozart.
This year we will cover geography in conjunction with our other subjects. We are planning to cover Earth Science this year and I expect to cover a lot of geography. Beginning with the continents and oceans, we should locate different habitats, the Pacific Ring of Fire, and unique geological formations such as the Grand Canyon and the Great Rift Valley.
