We've used map drill successfully, though this past year I let it slip along with a few other things due to health issues. We've only worked on continents, oceans and countries. We'll be studying modern times this coming year and I'm debating what to cover. We could use work on a good deal of things, so I am considering North, South and Central American countries, US capitals, Canadian provinces. All of these the kids have about 1/2 knowledge of, so putting them together might work.
Do you ever have them do more than countries? Largest cities, capitals, rivers, etc? We read and notice the places on the map, but I'm having an "it feels too easy" moment.
We also play on the ipad a variety of games and such re. to geography.
