While parents know reading, writing, and arithmetic are essential building blocks for all future education, many dont think about geography. Geography is often included in school curriculum as an afterthought in social studies classes. There are reasons to consider geography as a subject worthy of a bit more attention than that.
Geography helps students understand history and current events.
We all live in a world bound by space and time. Students should understand where they are, literally, in the world and in their own country. The study of maps is a wonderful tool for understanding how geography affects people. For example, geography helps explain why the Native Americans of the plains lived in homes quite different from those of the eastern woodlands or the Pacific northwest.
Geography enhances the study of science and mathematics.
Map reading skills include concepts such as distance and scale. Ratios in math class make more sense when they can be related to the scale on a map. Numbers come to life when students understand those numbers can represent population, distance above sea level, or distance from coast to coast.
Earth science is also easier for the student who understands geography. Geography offers the where and the science fills in the what and why. Oceans, deserts, and mountain ranges should be studied as geographical as well as scientific subjects.
Geography is best taught visually.
There is no substitute for good maps in the teaching of geography. Online tools are available as well as maps and globes in sizes to suit large classrooms or small desks as home. Consider using fun and educational placemats at home to spark some dinnertime conversation.
