  1. I might adapt some of these to use for our geography studies this year.

  2. Nice round up of activities, I especially like the brochure I think my kids would enjoy that one. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Love this, Phyllis! Pinning for later! I always like to tie state studies with US History. (This year we're doing Ancient Civilizations.)

  4. I'm so glad this is starting back up.

  5. I always love the things you highlight each week. I'm checking them out now.

  6. What a great collection of ideas!
