How to Use the Let’s Go Geography Curriculum

How To Use Let's Go GeographyLet’s Go is a unique homeschool geography curriculum .  Each lesson features a different world country as the curriculum takes you around the globe, continent by continent.  And each lesson is jam-packed with activities!

We suggest you learn geography with your elementary-aged child in about 1 hour a week.  Sometimes, you may not complete all the activities provided, and that’s OK.  Just hit the high spots, create interest and excitement, learn something new, and enjoy!

We also suggest that each student create a Travel Journal for Geography.  This is simply a 3-ring binder to keep all your geography activities.  And this will help you stay on track with each lesson.  Here’s how:

  1.  First, choose a Travel Journal Cover and slip it into the clear overlay if your binder has one OR use it as the first page if your binder doesn’t.  These are available FREE when you initially purchase your Let’s Go Curriculum.
  2. Next, add some Dividers for each continent.  Printable Continent Dividers are available here, or you can use plain store-bought ones.  We use 6, grouping Australia & Antarctica together.
  3. Every time the curriculum takes you to a new continent, print your Map of [continent] AND Flags of [continent] pages to put right behind their divider.  And now they are easy to find when you complete each lesson’s activities.
  4. For each new country in that continent, print and add the following (all are included in the curriculum)–
    • The country’s Notebooking Page — Have your child write something based on his/her ability and grade level.  Not too much or it gets overwhelming.  Too young to write?  You write what they tell you!
    • The country’s Photo Album — (optional) Use your printer’s Draft settings to save ink!
    • The country’s Coloring Page — (optional)
    • The country’s Featured Craft — (optional)  If the craft is bulky, slip it into a clear Sheet Protector OR take a picture to glue on your Notebooking page.

The Travel Journal not only keeps you focused all year long, it creates a lasting memory of everything your child has learned and created in geography!

Remember, this homeschool geography curriculum has geography activities on a variety of levels.  Sometimes things are noted as best for older students, and other times it is assumed the teacher will adapt things to the ages and abilities of the students.  Use the activities that work best for your student(s)!

  1. Hi there,

    I just realized my 1 year subscription expired but we haven’t finished year 1 yet. Do you have an option of lifetime access or something that does not have a set timeline to finish year one for subscriptions?
    I would like to renew but now I am not sure.

    1. Hi Monique! You have a Lifetime Access to your purchase (Year 1), so there is no need to renew! Please email us if you have any difficulty!

  2. Hi,
    Are the recommended library books required to complete the lessons or optional? Do I need to purchase any additional books or will I need to make trips to the library in order to complete this curriculum?

    1. You do not need to purchase any additional books. Recommended library books are optional. Each lesson includes several pages of pictures of interesting things about the country, several video clips on the country (varies…usually 2-5, depending on what is available), a link to written content online, and video of the country’s national anthem &/or cultural music. The music clips sometimes include more footage of the country for the kids to see. This is plenty for the younger child. Library books would be useful if you had an older child and wanted them to research in more depth. Thanks for asking!

  3. I am currently in the purchasing phase for my next year’s curriculum. How do I retrieve the lessons? Do they get e-mailed each week from time of purchase, or do I just go to the website to get each lesson?


    1. Hi Linda! You have full access to ALL the lessons in your plan at the time of purchase. You get them from your Account Page (after you Log In) at the site. Since you are purchasing now for next year, you may want to unsubscribe from the weekly email…it’s just a perk to help you stay on track, but it’s totally optional and has nothing to do with access to lessons!
