Geography, not my best subject... Inherently from the north with a kid raised in the south, my Canadian geography is definitely better. However, I'd still like to be knowledgeable and be able to help with my child's education as he gets older. The newest combination of books from our friends at National Geographic Kids makes learning at home fun. 

It certainly has been challenging for most households with a working parent and then trying to come home to teach the kids at night. National Geographic Kids has put together a Home Learning Essentials Package that includes the following books and makes learning together a fun yet educational experience.
 
Great National Geographic materials to add onto your distance learning materials
1) Beginner’s United States Atlas, Third Edition, (ages 7-10, 128 pages, paperback) - It is geared towards 7-10 year olds but for those of us that never learned much of US geography, this fully updated edition introduces us to cool facts and wonders of the various states. I love the various facts and showcased items about the unique things in each state. I didn't know what state birds, flowers, and flags were from what state. I loved how it's simple, straight forward, easy to understand and use. 

2) United States Atlas Sixth Edition, (ages 8-12, 176 pages, paperback) -This atlas is a bit more in depth and for slightly older kids but again is filled with maps, stats, facts and pictures. I find this book to be slightly more in depth than the Beginner's United States Atlas, Third Edition. It's a bit more wordy and detailed oriented. It again has the state birds and flags. 

United States Geography for beginners
3) 5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) - (ages 8-12, 224 pages, hardcover) -This book is absolutely one of our family favorites.  We always love the interesting and sometimes, completely random facts that you can learn from this book. It's crazy fascinating and keeps our son still for prolonged periods. 

4)  Izzy Newton and the S.M.A.R.T. Squad: Absolute Hero (ages 8-12, 192 pages, hardcover) -A brand new series from Valerie Tripp features Izzy Newton and her friends at Atom Middle School in her first adventure of this new middle-grade fiction series. The S.M.A.R.T. Squad needs to rely on the value of friendship and the power of science to help them think their way through all kinds of challenging situations. I love it when kids use their smarts to figure things out. Check out the first chapter and meet the characters at Smart Squad

5) Little Kids First Big Book of Science (ages 4-8, 128 pages, hardcover) - This is such a fun book! It teaches about the various different kinds of science, what scientists do and how/they look at and learn about different things such as earthquakes and volcanoes, animals and plants, sound and light and so much more. There's more than just reading though. Filled with various activities, games, experiments, it reminds me of the mini science experiments we did as kids. It was so much fun to watch a beansprout grow from a seed into a seedling.
