Our homeschool expert Genny (In Lieu of Preschool) is working on a U.S. Geography unit this month. Earlier today, we shared her American Flag Easel Painting post, which featured creative ways to teach kids about the American Flag using a simple painting prompt.
On her blog today, she also focused on using puzzles to teach geography. Check out her post to learn:
- Why puzzles are effective tools when teaching geography
- How to control the difficulty level of your lessons, and
- Her three favorite U.S. map puzzles (and why she uses them in her lesson plans!)
You can read the full post here.
