Geography for K-2nd Grades!

Let’s face it, early learners need a fun way to learn about geography! Years and years ago, I was a public school teacher before becoming a homeschooling parent. In ps, I taught 1st – 5th. As a homeschooling parent I taught all the way PreK-12th!

When we are teaching littles, here I’m talking K-2nd, it isn’t to early to begin our introduction of geography but it isn’t always easy to do. In my personal experience, giving them ‘projects’ to create something along side using a globe and perhaps recipes to create is always a hit!

That’s why My Teaching Library has created several mini-book projects to teach about many different countries! Early learners LOVE creating (and keeping to read again and again) these little minibooks. Plus, when you use these in conjunction with a globe and perhaps cooking activities or allow what is being learned to guide further research and projects, they won’t even realize they are learning!

Here are some of the resources that are ready to download and use on My Teaching Library…
