Here is an excellent resource which recently came my way: Geography! The Adventure in Your Community. Written and distributed by the National Geographic Society, this adventure geography booklet offers children a series of “missions” they are challenged to do. The missions cover all aspects of the curriculum and are a fun and creative way to study neighbourhoods and communities!
Missions cover everything from invasive species, plant growth and development, transportation, ecology, space and shapes, etc. Wonderfully cross-curricular!
This resource is US based, and does include links to search for specific information – also US based. However, all the info on their suggested searches is available on Canadian websites for you and your child also.
