Let’s Go Geography Review

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

 

This year, we have been adding in more intentional subjects. One of those subjects we have started to focus some more on is a homeschool geography curriculum so the chance to review Let’s Go Geography came at the perfect time for us.

Let’s Go Geography, Year 2 is a fun way to get kids engaged. Each lesson covers a country or part of the United States and gives you a week to complete. The lesson contains videos, pictures, text information, a craft, map activity, questions and so much more.  Each week is broken down into five sections – Mapping, Flag, Music, Let’s Explore and Create.  At the end of the weekly lesson, you will find printable pages that go along with that week.

I love that each lesson contains a variety of activities. I want to share with you how we use this throughout the week. We work through the beginning part together – reading about the place and she does the mapping activity. {She is nine and could absolutely work through this part on her own, but I don’t want to print out every page and my computer is riding the struggle bus, so the less the kids use it, the happier I am}. She can choose to color the flag, do the coloring page, the craft or the writing at any point in the week.  I also add in any books about that place or anything about that place that we have.  We have a few atlas books that also have some information about wherever we are learning about.  If it’s some place where I have been, we look through my photo album and money or anything else I have related to the area.  We have a fun cooking around the world book so we cook some of the traditional foods for that country.

Designed to be used by a variety of ages – K-5th grade, this allows you to do all or some of the activities in each lesson based on your child’s skill level.  As we read through the first few pages of the lesson, we like to compare the size and population of different countries to the United States.

I absolutely love that everything is clearly laid out.  You can even find the call number to look up books related to that country at the library.  Day one of the program guides you in setting up a travel journal – a three-ring binder.  As we go, we use a three-hole punch and add all of the pages in the binder.  These are separated by continent and are a great way to keep track of what you have done and the countries you have learned about.

Since Maggie is nine-years-old and is doing the work – I tend to ask her opinion on things.  Since I have been giving thought to what we will be using next year, I wanted to know what she thought about Let’s Go Geography.  Her opinion – “I love it!”  She is very much a project / activity-based person so this is a great geography curriculum for her, so her response was no surprise.  This has been a fantastic jump into geography for us and I love that she has the freedom to choose what activities she does when during the week.  Working on Honduras, she is already asking where we are learning about next week.
