Guest Hollow’s Geography

Homeschool geography curriculum

The high school geography update is now FINISHED!

In January we released Guest Hollow’s High School Geography & Cultures Curriculum (adaptable for middle school).

As soon as the curriculum was released, one of the main books went out of print. We decided to provide a FREE online book (with embedded videos, maps, etc.) as a replacement. This necessitated changing the schedule and the workbook as well.

All updates are now finished and available as a free update to those who previously purchased the curriculum!

Geography customers can access the new online version of the schedule by logging into the store via:

https://guesthollow.com/store/my-account/

and then clicking on “My Membership.”

You can access the new downloads by visiting the “My Account” page and then clicking on “Downloads.”

There is a new Microsoft version of the schedule, a new PDF version of the schedule, and a new workbook. The old files are still available for those of you who bought that version and want to use them instead of the new ones. That way you will still have access to your downloads if you need/want them.

The online textbook is available to everyone for free:

We’ve already received some great feedback about the new online book. Students are loving it!

Making Irish Blaa for Geography

Irish Blaa

I’m currently working on creating a FREE online “spine” book for Guest Hollow’s High School Geography & Cultures Curriculum. While working on the section about Ireland, I found a recipe for Irish Blaa. I couldn’t resist how these rolls looked via the online pictures, so I had to try making them for dinner.

Irish Blaa

They were so easy to make and turned out great!

Look at this fluffy and delicious roll!

Geography is yummy!

Is your student interested in cooking his/her way around the world? Guest Hollow’s High School Geography & Cultures Curriculum is chock-full of more delicious and ethnic recipes, great books, videos, art, music, activities, and more!

The current geography schedule uses The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Geography as a spine book, but we recently discovered that The Complete Idiot’s Guide is no longer being published. That’s why I decided to make a FREE online spine book to replace it with tons of fun embedded videos and lots of photos to illustrate what students are learning. I think it’s a much more visual and in-depth book than the original spine.

Everyone who purchases the curriculum will get a FREE upgrade to the new schedule as soon as I finish wrapping things up. 🙂

You can take a sneak peek at the current rough draft of the online geography “spine” book here:
