“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.

Ninth graders can take 1 Geography / Social Science credit (or Elective) for this course.

NOTE: Registration deadline is August 15, 2022.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.

This was a great class. My daughter learned a lot and found new places that she wants to visit! I am very impressed by Eva’s professionalism! We look forward to more OTA classes in the future!

Our daughter loved taking both Perspectives (fall and winter) and Geography with Miss Eva this past year. Miss Eva is a dedicated teacher and encourages the students every step along the way! I noticed a remarkable difference in my daughter’s writing abilities as well as her knowledge of the world as she worked har through the year in these courses.

The online format that OTA uses was a little new for us; however, we found it very easy to navigate.

Open Tent is an amazing resource for homeschoolers. We have been so pleased with the classes! We will be registering for additional classes this spring, summer and next year!

Thank you, Eva and the whole OTA team!

Eva makes geography fun! Every student needs to have an understand of the world outside their own bubble! They need to understand where other countries are located as well as the people, cultures, traditions, religions, and landmarks. This class provides that information in a fun and informational way!

In the beginning of the year, when my mom told me that I would be taking a Geography class, I was not very excited, I need to admit that I was wrong. I ended up LOVING this class. I love how Eva did not just teach us basic facts. She taught and showed us things that I never knew existed about every corner of the world. She is a fabulous teacher.

This class is NOTHING like the geography classes I had as a child. It is so thorough, not just country location, but all the unique things that make our world so diverse and interesting. My son has definitely learned so much from this class.
