Middle School Homeschool Geography
In my past life, before becoming a stay at home, homeschool mom, volunteer of all activities, I was a professional planner. I know what you are thinking: Wedding Planner? Financial Planner? Meal Planner?
I was a Land Use Planner. The easiest explanation of my time as a Land Use Planner is: I spent about 12 years of my life in two counties telling people what they can and can’t do on their own property. That sums it up.
Anyhow, geography has a special place in my heart and I am really excited with the recent curricula I have come across for Middle School. We dabbled a little in elementary school and now we are really going to dive in.
