Charlotte Mason had this to say about geography education: “But let him be at home in any single region; let him see, with the mind’s eye, the people at their work and at their play, the flowers and fruits in their seasons, the beasts, each in its habitat; and let him see all sympathetically, that is, let him follow the adventures of a traveller; and he knows more, is better furnished with ideas, than if he had learnt all the names on all the maps” – Volume 1
On Mission is an educational resource that is close to my heart, and I hope that it will be yours as well. So, what is it?
On Mission is a quarterly magazine that seeks to explore each featured country’s culture in a way that honors their heritage, shares how the Gospel is at work in their hearts, and offers opportunities for exploring foods, schools, housing, languages, exports, geography, zoology, topography, and so much more!
This is the inspiration behind On Mission– that we will provide opportunities to our children that would help them fully experience the culture of a new country, have their minds filled with images and ideas, and give them a love for the culture- more than a dry, boring dot on a map ever could.
Who is it for?
This program was created to be visually intriguing enough for your K4 students while academically challenging and interesting enough for your 6th-grade students. It truly integrates many ages into culture, geography, and missions studies!
