Geography is a too-often neglected subject, either entirely forgotten or else buried in a social studies curriculum. However it comes to life when using the Principle Approach, the Biblical classic method. Knowledge of the world is essential to fulfilling the dominion mandate, and knowledge of world geography teaches Godís principle of individuality and His creative power.
One key aspect of the Principle Approach is the ability to teach multiple subjects at the same time to different age levels. Our
Noah Planģ teacher guide shows you how to use the story of Pinocchio, a timeless literature classic, to teach geography combined with literature in the same lesson plans.
Pinocchio, by Carlo Collodi, addresses the theme of conscience and its important role in building character. Using the Principle Approach notebook method, you can introduce the very interesting setting of the book, Florence, Italy, to teach geography. This method frees learning to expand geography and culture to teach the Mediterranean Sea region and Europe, and allows the student to progress individually, mastering basic geography, reading, grammar and literary skills.
Detailed directions for each lesson include: principles to be taught from the story, the content of the lessons and instruction on how to incorporate language skills through the study. It also teaches map-making skills to learn of nations, continents, cities, rivers and seas.
