“In 2002, 89% of Americans aged 18-24 could locate the United States on a map. That means roughly one out of ten Americans could NOT find their own country. It gets worse. 93% of Swedes could find the United States on a map whereas only 16% of Americans could find Sweden.” ~ National Geographic, 2012 Geography is more than just learning where states or countries are located; geography involves understand the why of a group of people.
Geography is a knowledge of place names, locations of cultural and physical features; however, it also includes the languages, religions, economic activities, population, food, political systems and more for each area. This year long course will take you on a voyage of discovery as we explore the earth.
Using interactive games, personal geography interactive notebooks, culture studies, 3-D map creations, ethnic foods, and much more we will embark upon a journey discovering the fascinating world we live in. Thank you for joining us on our voyage!
Homework is approximately three hours a week with the exception of long term projects.
NOTE: Registration deadline is September 15, 2021.

This was a great class. My kiddo learned alot and found a few new places he wants to visit.
I was impressed by the teacher’s professionalism during this unprecedented time.
Looking forward to more classes in the future.
Two Great Classes!
Our daughter absolutely loved taking Perspectives 1 & 2 and Geography with Miss Eva this year. The online format that Open Tent uses was a little new for us to navigate but it all worked smoothly. Miss Eva is a dedicated teacher and encourages the students every step along the way. I noticed a remarkable difference in my daughters writing abilities as well as her knowledge of the world as she worked hard throughout the year in these courses.
Open Tent Academy is an amazing resource for Homeschoolers, and we have been so pleased with the classes our daughter took this year. We will be signing up for more classes for the spring and summer season. Thank you, Miss Eva and the whole Open Tent Academy team!!
Although in the beginning I was not excited to take a geography class, I ended up loving the class. I loved how Professor Eva did not just teach us basic facts. She taught and showed us things that I never knew existed about every corner of the word. She is a great teacher.

Eva makes Geography fun! Every student needs to have an understanding of the world outside their own bubble. They need to understand where other countries are located as well as population, geography, and other features. This class provides that information in a fun and informational way.
My son has learned so much and while researching, he gets sidetracked and accidentally learns even more. I love that our conversations a lot of times, revolve around geography.
This class is nothing like the geography classes I had as a child. It’s so thorough, not just country location, but all the unique things that make our world so diverse and so interesting. My son has definitely learned so much in this class.
This class is one of my daughters favorite’s! She only has good things to say about it. All of the classes she has taken with OpenTent have been great, but this one and Ms. Eva are her favorites! This is virtual learning at its finest!
More than maps!
Eva cemented geography by teaching about the landscape and culture of the different countries.
Fun & Informative
My daughter loves classes with Eva. Eva makes World Geography fun and informative. I know that my daughter will come out of all of Eva’s classes well educated.
