New AO Geography Topics!

Announcements/New AO Geography Topics!
In "Home Education," Charlotte Mason said, ". . . the mother . . . will find a hundred opportunities to teach geography by the way: a duck-pond is a lake or an inland sea; any brooklet will serve to illustrate the great rivers of the world; a hillock grows into a mountain––an Alpine system; a hazel-copse suggests the mighty forests of the Amazon; a reedy swamp, the rice-fields of China; a meadow, the boundless prairies of the West; the pretty purple flowers of the common mallow is a text whereon to hang the cotton fields of the Southern States: indeed, the whole field of pictorial geography––maps may wait until by-and-by––may be covered in this way."

Our latest addition to AO is that we have listed specific geography concepts to be taught "by the way" and scheduled them into different terms throughout Years 1-6. These have been added to our booklists, 36-week schedules and exams. The entire schedule is also outlined on this page:
