We are finishing our My Father's World Exploration to 1850s with a state report. We chose our home state of Indiana. I wanted to add more real-life state geography to help better orient my kids when we travel to see family. Children are inherently egocentric and they learn best when something relates to their own life, so we chose to map counties where people we know live.
I printed a free Indiana County map online, then made a list of counties where our family and friends live, or where my husband and I grew up. Have your children make a KEY on the side of their map, then find the counties!
