The Let's Go Geography Year 2 is scheduled to release August 19, and it's bigger and better than ever!
So what's new?!
First, Year 2 starts with a lesson on the 7 Continents. Not only is it a great overview of the globe, but the Craft activity is to cut-&-color cool dividers for each continent so kids will have them for the year's Travel Journal (aka, Geography Binder).
The schedule has been re-worked, too, eliminating Break Weeks. Which leads to this side-note about those (feel free to skip the next 2 paragraphs if it's TMI!) --
Why the Break Weeks anyway? Well, originally the curriculum was created to auto-deliver each week, which meant holidays were a problem. If someone started Dec. 1, they could be emailed a lesson right at the height of Christmas. So the Break Weeks allowed catch-up days.
Now that you can download lessons whenever you want, the Break Weeks aren't necessary. But to revise that part of Year 1 would be....pretty awful. Like torture, really. So they stay there, and are gone the following years.
But I digress. Back to our topic.
Each Year 2 lesson now points you to the theme country in our favorite atlas, Geography of the World. This is especially helpful for those with older students.
Speaking of which, another NEW bonus this year is a second Notebooking Page with narrower lines. Again, a little something more for older kids.
Add to that, there is an another plus with the videos. All videos that allow it are routed through SafeYouTube.net. The original YouTube URL is included just in case, but the SafeYouTube is linked. Just another precaution for kids on the good ol' internet!
Overall, there are more videos linked in general, and a few more photos, too.
Put it all together, and Year 2 is a winner!
So what are we waiting for?!! Well, just a few more weeks of prep work. As it stands right now, Semester 1 is scheduled to deliver on August 19. Semester 2 will follow on October 28.
Since the full year is coming in stages, Memberships will be available on a Semester basis. It's all good. Just a few more weeks!
