Planning the geography curriculum for kids can sometimes be rather tricky! While the internet has umpteen resources of free curriculums, it is important to keep in mind the age of the kids and their developmental characteristics before finalizing a curriculum plan.
From latitude and longitude to states and capitals, from time zones to climate, from locating different places on the map to cultural diversities, geography is all this and more!
Whether you are a homeschooling parent or a teacher, there are certain aspects that you need to keep in mind before you zero in on a curriculum. The most important step, probably, would be to make sure that the geography curriculum plan lists the milestones that kids need to achieve by the end of the year. Ensure that the kids have understood the basics before you move them on to more advanced topics. It is a good idea to include some revision time to give the little ones time to practice everything they’ve learnt.
