World Geography Plans – From My Archives

Harmony Art Mom World Geography Plans

I have received quite a bit of email about my free downloadable plans for high school geography. Dropbox has stopped supporting the file so I am now hosting it here on my Harmony Art Mom blog.

These plans were created for my family as explained in the entries below.

Entry with the download link: World Geography Plans Download.

Pretty thorough description found here: World Geography for High Schoolers.

Reading back through these two entries, I realize now how valuable this course was to my children. They learned over the months how interconnected our modern world is and how in their youth they could be wide open to experiencing different cultures through travel and volunteer work.

Since high school graduation my children have traveled to Ireland, Bolivia, Peru, Nicaragua, and Guyana. My youngest son is currently living in Guyana.

I know that spending a year in high school concentrating on world geography and cultures had a great impact on their choices in their twenties.

I invite you to download the plans and then tweak them to fit your family’s learning style and interests.

Please note that I have not updated all the links in the plans so you may need to do a Google search for the item or find a substitute. They are still very usable and will help you get started with your own high school level geography course.




Harmony Fine Arts – Blog and Products

Welcome to all the new readers here on the Harmony Fine Arts blog!

There are many new readers here on the blog at Harmony Fine Arts. I thought it might be nice to give you a “tour” of what you will find here that may benefit your family and homeschool. Please accept my warm welcome and hope that you will find something to help you in your efforts.

First and Foremost – Harmony Fine Arts

Harmony Fine Arts art and music appreciation plans have been around for many years. I started selling the plans as I created them for use with my own family of four homeschooled children. They are an easy way to offer art and music appreciation using picture study, artist and composer study, and then some follow up activities. There is something for everyone.

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

Weekly Suggestions for Music Appreciation and Sketching – Free to Subscribers!

There are 2 weekly emails you will get from me.

The first one is on Mondays where I give a suggested piece of classical music for your family to listen via YouTube. It is simple way to add in at least one piece of music appreciation into your week with a minimal amount of effort. Please enjoy your Music Appreciation Monday email and let me know how your family likes listening to it…either in a comment or an email.

Sketch Tuesday Drawing Assignments @harmonyfinearts small

The second email will be on Tuesdays and it is a suggested sketch topic that your family can complete and then send in an image for me to compile into a weekly slideshow on Flickr. I call the Sketch Tuesday. This feature has been offered here on Harmony Fine Arts for a very long time and I highly recommend it as a simple way to get your family started with a sketching habit. Plus, the weekly slideshow will let your family see what other sketchers are accomplishing and maybe it will inspire you even more. I love our Sketch Tuesday community.

Misc Posts

Occasionally I will share about my homeschooling experiences, my current empty nest after homeschooling, and giveaways and discount codes.

In short, you shouldn’t be overwhelmed with the amount of email you get in your email box from me here at Harmony Fine Arts. I hope you will stick around awhile and glean some helpful tips and enjoy the regular features.

Notebooking with Living Books

I am digging back through my older posts and updating links and photos. This is a mountain high job but so much fun reading back over my thoughts and ideas from the last years of homeschooling my two youngest boys. I especially love the Charlotte Mason posts and I hope you will glean some tips from this post on notebooking and living books. The complete title is Notebooking with Living Books or Don’t Kill a Living Book! I love this !

This post has lots of ideas and then in turn many links to related posts on notebooking, essay writing, poetry, and history timelines. The links should all work now so I invite you over to take a look for yourself. Make sure to pin the entry to your Pinterest board for further use.
