For Preschoolers, geography is mainly about making personal connections to the world. It is about skills that involve your child and teach them to be able to describe and locate places.
The truth is, both adults and children can learn fun facts about other countries. Both are naturally curious about different lands, their people and their cultures. It is that curiosity that is the basis for learning about geography. Geography is broken into two categories: physical geography which is the study of the earth’s surface, and cultural or human geography, which is the study of people and their cultures, religions, languages, cities, etc.
It’s never too early or too late to begin to learn simple geography facts. Start with the names of the 7 continents: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. Then try the major oceans: Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, Indian and Southern Ocean. Repetition is the key to memorizing facts. It is best to learn information in small bits, mastering a few facts at a time. According to psychological research, it takes only 7 repetitions of a stimulus to learn something new. You and your children can learn some basic geography together in a few short days.
