What grand geographical explorations and gigantic global excursions will you be making in your homeschool this Orion Term? 🎅 😊
❡ Come, here’s the map: You can use this amusing annual event to teach some informal geography lessons! Just get out your family atlas (riverhouses.org/newsletter) and have your students put a little post-it markers on the map to designate Santa’s route across the time zones. (And you can use it to learn about time zones, too — there’s a whole atlas plate showing the time zones!) 📡 🎅 🌏🌍🌎
