When I was in highschool, my most dreaded subject was World Geography and History in 5th period, right after lunch! I was specifically confused by latitude and longitude, and I always tuned out the monotone teacher.
I barely passed that class, and I remember having to memorize flash cards and maps over and over again just to pass with a D. Geography was a miserable subject for me, and one that I was determined to make happier and more exciting for my children when I began to homeschool.

There are quite a few subjects in our homeschool that we enjoy using unit studies for, and these can be quite successful without a set curriculum or textbook. World Geography is one of those subjects that unit studies work really well with.
When you pick a specific continent and then choose countries in that continent to begin to study, everything just comes alive! There are so many things to see and learn about, that your children will be excited to learn geography.
I have put together a ton of resources for you to use with your children to help immerse them in world geography. I have broken them down by each one of the 7 continents. I have also included free printables and resources to help them understand latitude, longitude and hemispheres in a way that is not boring and dry, like most of us had to endure growing up!
