Geography Resources

This long list of geography resources was posted on a yahoo group that I belong to… Bringing the World to Your Living Room

It looks really neat and I only had time to look at one or two links.  I can’t vouch for all the links but I hope you get some good ideas and resources out of it.

I started using Galloping the Globe with my 2nd grader and it’s good. My oldest (in 8th grade) would like to do something similar except on a deeper scale.  I’d like to add in Window on the World, which came recommended by missionary friends of ours.   I really like to incorporate history/social studies and geography together. I’m looking for ways to do that without “reinventing the wheel”.

{Maybe this would be a good place to insert the following information: I need to change what I’m having my 8th grader do for history. I think we will be able to come back to what she was doing (hopefully), however it’s not working at this time. I’m learning that it’s okay to change, even though I really like the curriculum. :) }

Resource Central has this extensive list of geography links.

Do you have good resources–books, ideas, sites, etc. for social studies, history and geography? Please share them in the comments…then I’ll know you stopped by and we can all benefit from your ideas.

The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer from The Message

Our Father in Heaven,

Reveal who You are,

Set the whole world right

Do what’s best–as above, so below

Keep us alive with three square meals.

Keep us forgiven with You and forgiving others

Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.

You’re in charge!

You can do anything You want!

You’re ablaze in beauty!

Yes. Yes. Yes.

I often read Scripture from The Message version. I especially enjoy reading familiar passages in this version. Because of the different wording, it really catches my attention.  For example, “You’re ablaze in beauty.” WOW! My daugther and I were amazed by the sunset this evening. The sun streaming through layers of clouds onto the whitest of snow…breathtaking…and yet, nothing near to the beauty and glory of God. He is ablaze in beauty, now and forevermore.

The Parable of the Lily

Easter Lilies

 The Parable of the Lily written by Liz Curtis Higgs is a great book to do at the end of winter or at the beginning of spring.  This story teaches children about forgiveness with the emphasis on what Christ did for us (EASTER!)

The Homeschoolshare site has a lesson plan/unit study that goes along with this story.

I like this story as it has many lessons to teach:

  • Forgiveness
  • seeds/soil/planting
  • Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13)
  • Disappointment/contentment
  • Thankfulness for the sacrificial, atoning work of Christ on the cross
  • and many more!
