1. First, does your child even know what state and city and county they live in? And how it connects to the rest of the country?
Can they spell it? Use these words for spelling tests. Maybe even including the surrounding cities and/or counties on your list. Don't make it too long, or this will get boring and frustrating and defeat the want your kids to be curious and eager to explore.

A. Find it on a map.
B. Find photos of the location on line.
C. Go for a drive to these surrounding areas.

2. Do they know they name of your state's governor? (MIne probably don't.) How about your city mayor?

Always start learning what's closest to you, what's the most valid in your child's life.

2. Memorize the name of each state (including the capitol would be even better). You can purchase music with the state names put to song to make it easier.

3. It may be FUN to memorize the main lakes, famous dams, mountains, and other features. But I would add these one week at a time, something like that, because why bother teaching something they will just forget?
My goal is for them to NEVER forget. Wouldn't that be great?

It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.

And we all lived happily ever after...
