geography challenged: part deux

i've decided it will be my life's work to impart a modicum of geographic knowledge onto the kids. the ironic thing is that i myself am not very good at geography. i mean, i know the basics, but when i'm faced with a blank map of the US i certainly have my troubles with all those square states in the middle.

the other day we had geography challenge part 2 in which we went over everything we had already discussed. it went much better and i realize that if i just drill these ideas into the kids heads over and over and over again some of them may acutally retain some of it. so i think if we just do this a few more times the kids might eventually remember where iraq is and start to understand that the states that are in the united states are not foreign countries.

You've certainly got your work cut out for you, Ms Dewey Decimal, but I have faith in you!

PS: Your job should come with a super hero cape!

That made me snort. I love capelets but they look ridiculous on me. I think I'm too short to rock one properly. I'm sure you would look fab in your capelet!
