The newly updated Geography Songs Kit includes 33 songs; a workbook with maps, lyrics, illustrations and tests; and a 25" x 36" world map. The songs teach the names and locations of the continents, oceans, planets, and 225 countries. It includes famous landmarks and maps to label and color. The maps are numbered in the same order that they are sung in the songs. This makes it easy to locate the countries while you are singing. Some songs are about just one country, others are about a whole continent. Fun for all ages!

A teacher from New Hampshire (Kit Debnar) graciously offers her outline to accompany Geography Songs. In advance, the teacher may wish to play the songs (first track on the British Isles, for example), as background music a few times, to familiarize everyone with the tunes.
