How to Use This Course

Students can have fun completing a range of activities including matching, decoding puzzles, multiple choice, map work, and even an international traders’ challenge.

Course Introduction

All About the World is a geography class comprised of eight units, with each unit increasing in difficulty and grade level. Unit 1 is appropriate for 1st grade, Unit 2 is appropriate for 2nd grade, etc., through Unit 8 for 8th grade. However, these units can be begun at any point. For example, if you have a 4th grader who has not had much background in geography, you may choose to do Units 1, 2, 3, and 4 over the course of a year. Your student may find some of the lessons and activities in the earliest units below his or her ability, but it will provide a solid introduction to world geography. Or, if you review the content in those units and find your student already has an understanding of those concepts, you can simply start with the unit matching your student’s grade level.
