History and Geography Meme #49: Featuring Ticia at Adventures in Mommydom

For the next few weeks I will be featuring some really special blogs, the bloggers behind them, and especially introducing you to their amazing history and geography posts.

This week I am showing you the wonderful history and geography learning Ticia is doing with her kids at Adventures in Mommydom.

They have been co-hosting a wonderful geography series in which they make a dish from 12 different countries, and learn about the countries in the process.

Their history lessons are often very hands-on, such as their recent study of Civil War Nursing, in which they made first aid kits.

They have been making a scrapbook of their learning about the 50 states.

Ticia gives lots of tips that you can use in teaching your own kids history and geography.

They even mummified a chicken when they studied Ancient Egypt!

By setting up scenes her young students are able to not only understand historical events that many adults don't, but they are also able to narrate back what happened in the battles.
What happened at Bull Run
That is true evidence of learning.

Be sure to hop over to Adventures in Mommydom and see all the creative learning that they do there (not only with history and geography, but with all subjects.)
(Be sure to tell her that I sent you.)
Oh, and, just to let you know, in case you are voting, Adventures in Mommydom is up for a couple of awards; Best Blog Design, Best Nitty-Gritty Homeschool Blog .
I hope that you will continue to link your new (and old) posts with any history and geography topic to this meme every Thursday. Please include this button on either the post you have linked or your sidebar or mention All Things Beautiful History and Geography meme in your post with a link. All posts that do not link directly to a history or geography post will be deleted. Remember that I am pinning all posts to Pinterest.


  1. Awww thanks for all of the kind words. I get so many ideas from you too. I remember first discovering you from your Roman posts because I was looking for those ideas at the time. And now we're on the same track in history, so it's making it a little harder for me to steal your ideas :)

  2. I havn't really posted on our blog about history or geography recently, but we are getting loads of ideas from you guys:)

  3. I really enjoy reading Ticia's blog. Her kids are always having fun, I especially like her Sunday Science post. Thank you for sharing.

  4. We re-enact wars and battles too. It's such a great way to help them understand difficult battle strategies. I love the idea about a first aid kit. I'm going to visit Ticia's blog later on today to glean some more ideas!

  5. It must be very nice to work with younger children. I observe that they are all just so interesting in history and geography at a young age.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
