In honor of Geography Awareness Week (November 14-20), I have decided to share some of my favorite geography sites this month.
Now, the world is full of fascinating places, but I am especially partial to my own great country… the U.S.A. And I have found many fun ways to help my students learn about the 50 states and the amazing geography located within these borders.
50States.com has maps galore.
The USGS site has amazing photos.
The Nations Online website contains an overview of the USA (country, land, history, people, etc.) and links to more things than you will probably have time to cover.
And to add to all this visual fun, you can also get some Geography Songs to help enhance your students’ learning.
Have fun exploring!
