This week our main focus in homeschool inquiry will be geography and science as we like to take chunks of learning over a week to really get our teeth into the subject and the content. It really helps with interest and learning tends to be very much more connected to experience.

Test your GLOBAL IQ!
How much do you know about the world?
Can you name the world's most spoken primary language? The largest consumer of oil? The most heavily fortified border on the planet? The current population of the U.S.?
We tested the geography knowledge of 18- to 24-year-olds across the U.S. to see how much they know about our world. How did they do? More know where the TV show CSI is set than can find Iraq on a map. The survey shows that too many young Americans have a limited understanding of the world.
Why Is It Important?
Geographic literacy is more than knowing state capitals. It's understanding how people and places interact, where things come from, and where we're going. Without geography, our young people are unprepared for an increasingly global future.
There is a daily geography quiz to take at two levels..... for the beginner and advanced. 10 questions against the clock.... multiple choice answers. A fun activity that also exposes kids to great language and exploration points of areas they need to explore more.
Lots of games to make learning fun. Looking forward to exploring with the boys this week.
