In a National Geographic poll of American young people several years ago...
But our world is becoming more and more interconnected every day. It's critical that our kids learn geography...now more than ever.
Sadly, we often ignore geography in our school schedules. Completely. Which is crazy because it's a vital skill, and it doesn't take much time. So how do we give geography the attention it deserves?
So what does the World Tour look like? We visit* almost 30 different countries every school year (36 weeks) in the weekly lessons.

Country by country and continent by continent, we travel* the world in just an hour a week. But, oh, what an hour it is. With this curriculum, you'll do things like...

The real beauty of this plan is that it delivers to you automatically. You get an email. Every week. So no more books forgotten on the back of the shelf.
* All travel on this site refers to learning via internet & books, not physical trips!
I teach several weekly geography classes in a large, homeschool co-op. And I have done that for many years. I love seeing the kids marvel at the great, big world outside of their own experiences. And their sense of wonder that so many people live so very differently than they do.
We open books to look at pictures and talk about new cultures: what dads or moms might do for a living, what houses and streets are like, how much other religions differ from their own ways of worship, and many other things. And many times I take the opportunity to remind them how very blessed they are to live where they do. And after seeing some of the pictures, they GET IT!
This is the curriculum I use every week. The kids love it!
Then we have fun with songs and maps and flags and coloring and crafts.

I'd love to share my journey with you. I've put my own tried-and-true curriculum together to offer it to homeschooling families just like yours. It's also great for small classrooms and co-ops, too. And it's written with the K-4th Grade child in mind. Take a look at the places we'll go by clicking the image at the left.
But don't take my word for it. Try it for yourself, right now, for just $1.
Yes, just $1. That's not a typo! In exchange for this tiny investment, I'm going to give you a taste of what a typical Let's Go lesson is like. You and your student(s) can explore Our Amazing World with songs, videos, and activities and open the door to touring the rest of the globe with us.
When you sign up today, you get this Introductory Week's lesson for just $1. Like it? Do nothing...your subscription will automatically kick in. If you'd rather hold off until a later time, simply cancel before the week is out.
So let me ask you this...
As in, "I hope & pray my kids absorb geography from everyday life"?
Or, "I hope & pray no one notices how much my kids don't know about their world"?
We can help you change that!
Glad you asked! In Let's Go Geography, your student(s) will be making things every week like maps, flags, writing, and other creative activities. We encourage you to keep everything in a "Travel Journal," which is simply a 3-ring binder set aside for geography.
Travel Journal Covers make your 3-ring binder special. Choose from the 4 designs, print on a color printer, & write in your name. Now you have a beautiful first page, or you can slip it into the clear overlay if your binder has that. Either way, the covers turn your binder from ordinary into something really special.
Of course, these normally are sold separately, but we want to do something extra for you. If you join today, these printable Journal Covers are yours. Just download, print, and enjoy. It's on us.
As you've probably guessed, offering a lesson for only $1 isn't extremely profitable on our end. So why do I do this?
My sincere hope is you'll love what you see and choose to stay.
If you do, GREAT!
If not, that's OK, too.
Just cancel before the week is over, and you'll not be charged for a complete subscription.
Choose a Subscription that works for you. Choose between a full year (36 weeks) or just a semester (1/2 of that). Remember, you'll get our Free Bonus Travel Journal Covers. AND you'll have a one-week trial period for $1 before your Subscription automatically kicks in.
It's a Win-Win. Check out the 3 options below:
Pay twice a year. Save lots.
2 Payments - Full Year
Pay 4x a year. Save some $$.
4 Payments - Full Year
Pay 2x in the semester. Good deal.
2 Payments - 1/2 Year
Each lesson is a stand-alone product, meaning that they don't build on each other. So if you miss a week in spite of the included week break in each quarter, no need to sweat bullets. Just relax, keep drinking that cup of coffee, & move on! There's no real harm done.
That also means that each lesson is unique. Sure, they all follow a similar pattern, but the lessons move from country to country, and the content and activities are always different.
In each lesson you can expect to find...
You will need Internet access & a printer. As you will see on your Intro Lesson, you will get links to information, songs, and/or crafts in each Lesson. And you will want to print the Activities, Flags, Maps, Writing Pages, and Coloring. Beyond that, library books are recommended, but optional. And the Featured Craft is also optional. So you can satisfactorily finish each lesson with just a printer & a computer (or other device) with Internet access.
And it all comes to you automatically. You get an email reminder with a link to the online content. Just download the week's PDF lesson, and you're ready to go.
Late? Are we related? Seriously, though, you can join the course at any time. Your membership will begin at Lesson 1, no matter when you sign up. We offer a full, 36-week school year membership, as well as an 18-week semester membership. Is the school year half over? No problem. Just sign up for the Semester option. You will get the 1st half (semester) of Year 1, and you can enroll in the 2nd Semester later.
P.S.: This is the only chance you will have to get the Bonus Travel Journal Covers FREE! Don't lose this opportunity!
