Let’s Go Geography is a curriculum for grade K-5, which teaches geography country by country, through online interactive activities. The author is a homeschooling mom. By buying a subscription, you will have access to digital materials like PDF files of craft ideas and patterns, links to YouTube videos, and printouts meant to be colored. You also get a list of books you could check out from your local library, which cover each country.
My children were in 5th and 7th grade when we went through this curriculum and it was still relevant to their ages. We did not do the crafts, but we watched the YouTube videos and learned about different countries. From some of the “field trips,” we followed some other inquiry-based learning paths of our own. That’s the beauty of homeschooling. We can take time to answer questions that hit us as we study.
I like a curriculum that uses the name “geography” because this fuzzy subject of “social studies” has never appealed to me. When you learn about the world around you, just call it geography, please.
With Let’s Go Geography, you have the flexibility to do one country per day or per week, or several countries a day. Since my children were older, we covered even five countries in one sitting. We looked up the country on the map and watched the different videos about the country. I especially enjoyed listening to the national anthems of different countries.
When patterns start emerging and countries run into each other, you know you have studied enough for the day. You can pick it back up the next day.
You can try it for free here. This is simply a link to a page where you can download a free lesson so that you can see for yourself how it works.
It costs $34.99 for a lifetime subscription for Year 1. Year 2 is already out, as well, and a separate purchase. Year 3 will be out in the fall of 2021. This curriculum was offered to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
