Download 60+ FREE Geography from A to Z notebooking / copywork printables to create your own illustrated geography dictionary!
We have used the My Father’s World homeschool curriculum for quite awhile! It has been a resource for our homeschool family. The first curriculum package in the My Father’s World 3rd – 8th grade learning cycle is Exploring Countries & Cultures. As with all of our MFW curriculum, I have created printables and copywork pages to supplement this already amazing homeschool program.
Geography From A to Z is one of the awesome books that is included as part of the MFW ECC curriculum package. It is such an excellent geography resource for young children!
However, rather than using the index cards suggested in the curriculum, I decided to create notebooking / copywork / illustration pages based on the definitions found in the book so that my kids could create their very own geography dictionary!
I thought it would be fun for my kids to create a beautiful keepsake geography dictionary…and now your kids can too!
Simply print the pages. As each word is presented in the curriculum, copy the definition and draw an illustration of the word. My daughter basically drew her own version of the image featured in the Geography from A to Z book. Once each page was complete, she placed them in her geography notebook (a 3-ring binder) alphabetically. It is a fun little way to “secretly” add in some practice alphabetizing!
However, when we went through the MFW ECC curriculum with my older set of twin boys, we changed things up a bit. We still used the same printable pages, but instead of a 3-ring notebook, we made a special cover and used our binding machine (love this thing!!) to spiral bind all the pages together to create a stand-alone geography dictionary.
PLEASE NOTE: These printables were designed for use by 2nd and 3rd graders using the My Father’s World Exploring Countries & Cultures curriculum.
Lastly, I created these printables to coordinate with the original version of the MFW ECC curriculum. I am not certain if they coordinate with the current version available.
