Friday Freebies: Geography

Studying geography in your homeschool? Check out National Geographic’s Maps: Tools for Adventure. This site includes interactive map games, links for outline maps, and lesson plans, including a Unit Study on maps (their history, using them, and creating them) for grades 3-5 (can be modified to use with younger or older children).

Map Adventures is another Unit on Maps for the elementary ages from USGS.gov (U.S. Geological Survey).

Home Geography for Primary Grades by C.C. Long is available free for from archive.org in various formats (kindle, EPUB, pdf, etc.). This neat little “living” book is a gentle introduction to geography for K-3. Includes telling direction by the sun, estimating distance, land forms, the water cycle, rivers, and much more.
