Learn Around the World with Lets Go Geography

Let's Go Geography

One of my favorite subjects in school was geography. I loved learning about the different countries and especially experiencing their cultures. I've always wanted to find Mary a homeschool geography curriculum that would take her on a "tour" of the world so I was thrilled to review Let's Go Geography.

Let's Go Geography is an online subscription for grades K-4 that will let your kids take a trip around the world each week. Each week they are given a new lesson but you can go faster than that if you wish. The subscription will email you a lesson each week and you can also login to your account online if you are going at a faster pace with the downloadable year you can purchase.

The weekly lessons are very hands on and include things like crafts, coloring, videos and maps. I also loved how they gave you ideas for the books in the library as well. Going to the library to get books for unit studies has always been a staple for me when it comes to learning.

Let's Go Geography has three years of all new material and each year can be broken down into 26 countries and 2 regions of the United States.

The weekly lessons shouldn't take a lot of time at all and they can be downloaded via PDF. Here are some of the activities you can expect in each lesson:


  • Locating the country on a map and learning basic facts about it
  • Listening to music that is native to the country
  • Coloring and printing the country flag to add to your "passport"
  • Watching videos that take you on a sightseeing tour of the country
  • An activity craft that correlates with the country
  • Printables including notebooking pages

Let's Go Geography can be used as a three year curriculum as well! Below is the layout for their three year studying program.

For the very first week in Year 1, you'll learn about the Northeast in the United States. Since we were reading The Sign of the Beaver which takes place in Maine, we really studied this a lot. We did focus a lot on Maine for our first week and we also started a unit study for The Sign of the Beaver. I added a few more things into our lesson like finding certain places on the map that take place in the book as well.

The craft for the first week while studying the Northeast was actually a perfect fit for a deeper study on Maine too. It was a cute lighthouse craft that can be made with either tealights or cut out flames.


Overall I am really impressed with Let's Go Geography. They have an amazing curriculum that is easy for planning for parents and really fun for kids. Each week is like visiting a whole new place and you can even further the learning with relevant books or unit studies like we did.
