A popular thing to do with homeschoolers and afterschoolers is studying United States geography with their kids. They go through and learn all about the United States in different ways.
Here’s the primary United States geography ideas I’ve seen:
Postcard study-They ask for postcards and when they get a postcard for a new state they study that state.
Recipe study-Eat snacks/meals/desserts from the different states
Chonrological Order- for when they entered the union
I’ve done both all 3 to some extent or another, and we really enjoyed it, and almost always we got bogged down about halfway through.
For the sake of this post I’m going to go through and divide up these United States geography ideas by area (I’ll admit it’s partially because that’s how my pictures are done)
I plan to name one post per state, there’s a lot of ideas out there.
Northeast United States geography ideas
Southeast United States Geography ideas
Central United States Geography Ideas
Southwest United States Geography Ideas
Hawaii (only because this is where they are in the picture of the map)
Northwest United States Geography Ideas
Well, that’s all 50 states for the United States Geography Ideas. That took forever to get together, and that’s with two people essentially saying, “Here’s my geography folder, have at it.” So many posts….
