The Big Teen's Geography ...

So I am adding this completed course to my big teen's online transcript.  If you want to see all the courses I have posted so far, click on high school transcripts.  The big teen will have completed 28 different courses by the time he graduates, so this list will grow longer.  For today ~ GEOGRAPHY.

In Geography, the big teen took a 16 week class with other homeschoolers, attended a Geography Club once a month for 1 year and attended a homeschool International Night once a year for three years.  Each weekly class, monthly club, and homeschool International Night presentation required an in-depth oral/written report.  (I have all the written reports in his records.)  Also, the yearly event usually takes him about 15 hours of prep work and a large display/exhibit, and he dresses in the appropriate country's costume.

Countries studied in depth ~

  • Chile
  • Russia
  • Ireland
  • Italy  
  • Kenya
  • Haiti
  • Paraguay
  • Norway
  • Egypt
  • England
  • Easter Island
  • Mongolia
  • Antarctica (not really a country)
  • Australia
  • Japan
  • Colombia
He also studied North Carolina and Alaska in depth.  He did 11 written reports and oral reports on almost all the countries, as well.  He played games, such as Borderline Middle East and USA and online geography terms games.  He also studied the Middle East in an attempt to understand what is going on in that part of the world.  He received an A for this course.



  1. SOUNDS exhausting! How is it going?

  2. I have enjoyed reading your transcript plans. I am working on a transcript for my daughter and am always wondering if I am doing it correctly. I loved the laundry story. The kids are adorable.
