"The whole earth is full of His glory!" Is. 6:3. This truth will be our key emphasis in this elementary geography course. We will examine our world using the book A Child's Geography: Exploring His Earth by Ann Voskamp as a guide. We will study what is over our heads, under our feet, and in the world around us. The sciences of geography are unpacked as we begin to understand our atmosphere, our hydrosphere, and our lithosphere. This understanding prepares us for a better exploration's of our world's countries. This course is a good introduction into world geography and students will also spend a portion of the year learning about United States geography. We will make a lap book that that will include geographical terms and maps that can be used as a handy reference guide after our course is complete. In addition, we will read about other cultures and people groups and learn ways to pray for them through You Can Change the World by Jill Johnstone and From Arapesh to Zuni: A Book of Bibleless Peoples by Karen Lewis. The texts for this course do not need to be purchased.
