I realize it's early to be planning for a new school year, but that's the planner in me, I guess. Ds6 (1st grade) and I will be finishing an intro to US history year in March. I had planned to do world geography next, with a two-year study of the 50 states in 3rd and 4th. (I'm not required to follow the public school curriculum, but most 4th graders in our state study Mississippi then). But now I'm thinking that the 50 states would make more sense right after US history. I could just hit the highlights of Miss. in 2nd grade and do it more in depth in 4th. What do you think?
ETA: If I do the 50 states first, should I go in alphabetical order, by order of statehood, or by region?
