As a homeschool parent, I know that my kids learn best when they are having fun. That’s why I love playing learning games with my kids!
Gameschooling (learning through playing games together) not only helps your kids learn new facts, but it also strengthens your relationship with your child. That’s what I call a win-win!
In this post I’ve compiled some great games you can play with your kids that also teach geography. From continents to countries to flags to states, there’s something here for everyone.
Note: You can find more kid-friendly geography activities on my geography unit study page.
