9 Creative Ways to Explore the World
Though maps are the first thing I typically think of when I hear the word, "geography," did you know that Geography entails SO MUCH MORE?? Using/ reading maps is just the "tip of the iceberg." Geography encompasses people, culture, landforms, etc etc. Geography is learning about the world in which we live, which is a BIG BIG place!
Well to make Geography more interactive than simply staring and pointing at a huge, complicated-looking map, here are some fun links to get your child discovering the world he/ she lives in!
