Anytime of the year is a good time to study geography. During your summer trips point out different landforms on a map and look for them as you travel. It's a fun road game.

Geography is the study of human interaction with their physical environment. It is how humans live on the earth. This environment includes features of the planet, animals, plants and cultures.
A child's first introduction to geography is in the home. That is, the child's exposure to the native culture. An important part of a child's education is an introduction to other cultures and environments.

Names of Geographic Things

A fun introduction to geography is learning about landforms. A land form is a unit that forms a part of the overall shape of the earth. A collection of landforms is called a landscape . A landscape is all the visible parts of an area of the earth.

Introducing the Nomenclature Cards with Definitions

Place a picture, such as the isthmus with the word or label isthmus below the picture on a work rug or table. Under this card and label place the definition of the card. (An isthmus is a narrow neck or strip of land where two larger sections of land are connected.)

Take two more different cards and place in proper order, one card, label and definition at a time. Read the definition to your child. Let your child read the definition if they are able or wish to do this. This lesson can last over several days.

Always allow your child to do the exercise after demonstrating it. Quit your presentation if your child understands how to do it and wishes to do the rest without guidance.
