Welcome to this week’s Geography Quest! I think I’ve learned that I’ll need to be flexible with the exact day each week the Quest will be posted. I hope you’ll be flexible with me!

This week’s quest is Geography in Literature:

There are many opportunities for geography in literature topics. With autumn and apple season just around the corner in New York State, let’s take a fun journey around the world to make an apple pie.

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman

  1. Read the book with your children.
  2. Have them list (through narration or writing) the continents and countries mentioned in the book.
  3. List the oceans in the book.
  4. Make a world map available to them to label the places they listed.
  5. Draw arrows on the map so they can remember the sequence of the journey.
  6. Title the map.
  7. Color the map if it is not printed in color.

  • Name the resources they found in each location.
  • What other resources is the country known for? Use a world atlas to find your answer.
  • You might consider a project like a diorama for this one.

Using WonderMaps for Geography Quests

WonderMaps allows you to pick and choose what you focus on in a map. I printed one in color and one in black and white. I love the color maps with the physical features. Physical maps are probably my favorite map of all. I love to see the topography of a country and the color overlay seems to really bring out those features.
