    Geography is one of our favorite subjects so I research as much as possible before the start of a year.  These websites have great insight into countries and we use them as supplements to our reading unless the country is one where I found little info on that I liked.  There is often enough information to use these sites alone, many with living geography as their style.  These are not geography games, but prayer websites, info for children, etc.

    http://www.operationworld.org/  This is a favorite, it often includes prayer videos by native people and beautiful video images.

    What I usually do when planning, is visit all these sites once I know which countries we are looking at for the year and see what I can use.  There are days I use only these sites and find that for their ages (9yo, 6yo, 4yo) there is enough information.  We also color a page of the country flag and add crafts or recipes from books or other resources.

    THANK YOU! I can’t wait to sit down with some hot tea and browse! I definitely was not looking for game sites, so these are perfect! As Christie suggested, I’m going to go into a continental study of Asia. My ds really enjoyed coloring the flags of the Middle East, so we will continue that with Asia. I will look over these sites to see if I can find something to replace Voskamp’s book. Thank you again!
