Is giving your kid a global perspective important to you?
Geography tends to be a subject that moms aren’t sure how to teach and more than this it is likely because there is not much awareness how to link it with day today lives .Kids understand the subject when they themselves have real experience of world they live in.

I love geography and have loved it since I was a young child. This love probably comes from traveling in school days with my parents every year in summer holidays. My dad always had travelling books and tourism guides handy with him at home. When I was young, I used to look at maps, atlas and into these travelling books in my spare time. So I really feel that my fire for geography began from my home from where I got sense to explore new places and world. I travelled almost whole northern India with my parents in school days. After graduation and marriage I added lot in my list to ten European countries and almost many places in India now.

Young children learn through their senses and experiences. With just a little encouragement and some direction, young children will develop the vocabulary, awareness, and curiosity that will help them better understand and learn geography.

My kid begins to love books and have a fascination with other cultures, people, and places since he was 2 as we travelled almost all major European countries with him. I want my child to know a little more than the name, location, and capitals of the world. We have taken a lot of cross country trips visiting church history sites, family history, and European history sites, and seeing a lot of real geography! Now he retained where he traveled and love to travel with us because he got chance to explore the nature around and trust me children remember what they dig out for themselves. In addition I helped him creating his personnel Travelling Book. I always try to make geography come alive by allowing him the opportunity to experience it firsthand. I found once children understand the geography around them they’ll be excited to learn about all of the amazing geographical locations throughout the world.

I bought him kids’ friendly atlas, world maps, geographic encyclopedia that’s full of colorful illustrations and facts. I encourage him to look up travel stories and photos from magazines to complement the information in the encyclopedia. Learning how to create and detail maps is also a lot of fun! My kid always have a great time adding rivers, mountains, borders and more to their maps as part of his geography lessons!

Photography can also inspire kids to learn about a particular place. I tried these simple tips and it worked for me .Hoping all moms try these little tips that may help their younger ones to explore the world around them. Once you start teaching at your home this way, your kids won’t want you to stop!”
