A dear reader, Pam, sent me this question…
Q: Hi Tricia. I was wondering how you were scheduling A Child’s Geography (ACG)? We are using Ann’s book this year as well. We are only on Ch. 2 and that’s fine but I am hoping to get the chapter read one day and do an activity the next or day after.—Pam
A: Hi Pam, I like your schedule! We are reading one chapter a week. I am reading the chapter to the children during/after lunch. Then we are doing the activity immediately following. Though the paper mache globe we did on a different day and lumped it together with our salt dough map for Tapestry of Grace. Some days we don’t do the activity. Depending on the day, our school work load and if it matches our overall studies. I am truly using it as a supplement. I wanted us to get a big picture of God’s world. And that ACG is giving us for sure! Here are some supporting posts for more reading!
I felt like our world geography was lacking. That is until this year. I’ve built in time with One More Thing After Lunch habit. That 15 minutes to half an hour a week is a grounding and a jumping off place. A Biblical worldview.
“Did you know that the water we drink, that’s in the Pacific, Atlantic, India, Southern and Arctic Ocean is the EXACT same water that God created on Day 2 of Creation? In the clouds overhead may be a water droplet Jonah and the great fish swam in! In your next glass of water may be one of the same droplets of water that Moses commanded to gush forth from the rock!” That was in my Geography lesson, and I was like “wait, whaaaatttt?!” that. is. so. cool. ~ 15-year-old
Do you have a subject you’d really like to add to your homeschool? Sometimes 15 minutes to half an hour a week does the trick. Click to comment…
