Fun Geography for Kids!
As I mentioned in our Math Fun with “Fraction Pie” post, last week was our first week of homeschooling. It’s going great so far! Mostly I think because I’m trying to add in as many hands-on learning activities as I can to supplement Sawyer’s Time4Learning curriculum. Aside form our fraction learning fun last week, we also learned about maps and globes. So I threw together this fun World Puzzle Sensory Bin to make geography for kids more fun.
Geography for Kids with a World Puzzle Sensory Bin
I picked up this simple wooden world puzzle for under $5 at Walmart and thought it’d be perfect for our geography learning. (Here’s a similar world map puzzle on Amazon.)
And to make it a sensory experience, I hid the puzzle pieces in some dry beans and rice in a sensory bin. Then I threw in some Jumbo Tweezers for some extra fine motor skill practice, too.
It was so quick and easy to throw together, and the kids squealed with excitement when they saw it. It really kicked that basic wooden puzzle (and their geography learning) up a level!
How do you make geography for kids fun? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments below!
