I've mentioned several times before that I believe the best way to learn Geography (for any of us, really) is to draw maps. My children and I sketch, trace, color, use dry erase boards, and more as we practice drawing in the boundaries and geographical features of various land masses. Over the next few weeks, we're learning the countries of South America. Both the above pictured maps were drawn free-hand. After just a couple of attempts, my children could easily identify the 13 countries they need to be familiar with for our current CC cycle.
