Learning About Morocco

Morocco was one of the countries that was ‘lighter’ for us, but it was nice to have a little bit of a break. We used the time to focus on several geography terms ~ strait {Strait of Gibraltar}, desert, mountains, coast, plateau, plain, valley. We also talked about the government in Morocco, read some great books about the country and made a very simple dish as our meal from Morocco.

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

  • I love these posts. I only have 40 more states to go, okay I think it's really 45, and then we can start nations.....

  • I enjoy reading about your geography studies. We do it very modified this year considering that I have a 3 year old, but it's going to be a lot of fun to do over years.

  • I love everything you do with your kids. We are working on the States now making a Scrapbook as we go along that we can add to throughout the school years. We will start the World studies after we finish the States.

  • We are so blessed to have you go before us down this road and be willing to share all your great resources. Where did you get the maps that you use for your pages? ie the Mapping Morrocco activity? My kids are a bit younger and it wouldn't be appropriate to do all the activities you have listed, but I would love to make some of my own and was looking for a good map source. Thanks!

  • We live overseas (morocco actually!) and I just love that you are including such a detailed, fun, and knowledgeable element to your kids geography education. The more kids can learn about the world, the better. Way to go! I am looking forward to using many of your ideas with my boys. Thanks!
