Learning About Our Country ~ the United States

The United States was the last country that we studied in our two year world geography study.  Since we were going to be doing Early American History in the upcoming year, we just did a general study to get the basics in ~ because really, there is SO much you could do!

The United States is the third largest country in the world and located on the continent of North America. There are six different regions in the US: New England, the mid-Atlantic, the South, the Midwest, Southwest, and the West.

You can view the other countries that we’ve studied from North America on my North America geography page. See the other countries that we’ve studied

  • Hi Jolanthe!
    Terrific geography resources...thanks for sharing. I'm incorporating some snatches of geography into our morning circle time, so your post was just what I needed for ideas!
    Blessings,
    Shannon

  • You're probably all done with US, but did you check out Uncle Ben's Guide to the United States Government? Back when I was teaching I loved that site.
