Why choose Guest Hollow’s Jr. Geography?

Homeschooling with Guest Hollow’s Jr. Geography is
fun and flexible!

I believe geography is an often over-looked subject that sometimes gets short shrift in our homeschools. Geography is usually squashed into history studies or quickly glossed over with a workbook or song. Students often spend time learning about the cultures of ancient civilizations, but they don’t usually spend as much time learning about the current cultures, people and places that exist all over the world. That leaves them woefully unprepared to understand our world’s politics, world-wide needs or even that there are people who live very different lives from themselves.

Learning about the world can open their eyes, mind, and heart concerning others and excite their imaginations with animals, cuisine, landscapes, culture, and stories from different regions around the world.

Learn about the world!

Geography & cultures should be something we as homeschoolers don’t neglect. In this ever-expanding global community, our kids NEED to know this material to understand so many of the things going on in our world that directly affect us as global citizens.

Guest Hollow’s Jr. Geography Curriculum brings geography to life. Join us for a
journey around the world!

F.A.Q. for Guest Hollow’s Jr. Homeschool Geography Curriculum

This curriculum can be used for grades 1 through 6, although it will work best for students who are able to read independently (around 2nd to 3rd grade) through 6th grade. If you have younger students, you’ll need to be more involved and many of the readers will need to be turned into read-alouds.

We strongly suggest that you view every item linked or used in this curriculum to make sure it meets with your approval.

While this schedule doesn’t track with the high school level yet, you can easily rearrange most of the topics to match (more-or-less). We plan on matching up the schedules at a later date.

2 Years to Access Additional Downloads & the Online Schedule*

Additional downloads (after your initial purchase) and access to the online version of the schedule are provided as a courtesy and are not guaranteed due to various potential technical and business (and life!) circumstances. It is our intention to continue to provide access for a period of 2 years from the date of purchase. After the 2-year period, you will have the opportunity to repurchase your access at a substantial discount.

Please note, if you have problems, we have a liberal policy of providing extra, free access for unusual circumstances (at our discretion). Just contact us:

*Access to the online version of the curriculum schedules and additional downloads is provided as a courtesy and is not guaranteed due to potential various circumstances on our end and yours including but not limited to various computer, device, and internet configurations.

Yes, on a case-by-case basis depending on the amount of paperwork they require and the bureaucracy that needs to be navigated. 😉

No, you may NOT resell, share, or distribute any of Guest Hollow’s digital products (or printed out copies of our digital products) which includes but is not limited to schedules, workbooks, printables, and other materials.

Our materials are licensed for a single family’s use only. You may print out as many copies as you reasonably need for siblings or others living in your home.

Please contact us if you wish to use our materials in a co-op or school:

Yes, but every family in a co-op needs to purchase a copy of our materials (one item per family). We offer a co-op discount. Contact us for information about the discount.

Schools need to contact us for school pricing and payment options.

Contact us at:

No. We only offer a digital version at this time. You can print out your materials at home or have them printed via a printing service.

Some of our customers use The Homeschool Printing Company or Family Nest Printing. We don’t endorse any specific printing company. They are shared for informational purposes only.

We are Christians, but Guest Hollow’s Jr. Geography Curriculum is not intended to be a “Christian resource”. However, there may be infrequent (or what we consider to be) minor references or links to resources that mention Christian ideas, values, or sectarian topics even in our secular/non-religious/neutral curriculums.

If we schedule in a Christian book, we try to give you notice of such in the books and resources page.

Christians and non-Christians should preview the scheduled books and all other resources such as videos, etc. to make sure they are compatible with your beliefs, philosophies, and values.

After purchasing a curriculum, you’ll see that the item you just bought shows that it is discounted 50% in our store. The reason you are seeing this is because we give you the opportunity to repurchase the schedule and your downloads at a substantial discount before they expire (2 years from date of purchase).

Please note: You do NOT need to repurchase your schedule in order to use the files you originally purchased and downloaded. You can use your downloaded schedule forever and can click on the links just as you can the online version of the schedule. You just won’t have access to any updates after your online access expires.

Why does access expire? Every year we go through all our curriculum schedules and update broken links and/or replace books that have gone out of print. This is a very time-intensive process that keeps our curricula up-to-date. Your repurchase helps fund this process and provides you with a schedule that has all the new additions or changes.

You need to repurchase your access BEFORE it expires in order to get the 50% discount due to the way our “membership” software works. If for some reason you miss the deadline, let us know why. We may give you a coupon code for the 50% off at our discretion.

*It is our intention to provide access for a period of 2 years, however, access to the online version of the curriculum schedules and additional downloads is provided as a courtesy and is not guaranteed due to potential various circumstances on our end and yours including but not limited to various computer, device, and internet configurations.

    We are almost half-way through this curriculum right now, and it has been a big hit with my little ones! It isn’t JUST geography either. The literature selections are fantastic, and my children have learned a ton. Highly recommend!

  2. Stephanie Schulte (verified owner)

    We are loving Jr Geography! It is so nice to have a buffet of items and pick what we want to use for the week. We especially love the book and video selections. We also enjoy adding in treats from many of the countries. It is such a fun way to learn about other countries around the world!
