Let's Go Geography

One of the fun things about homeschooling is that you find yourself learning or re-learning things as you teach. Wouldn’t you agree?

With Let’s Go Geography, you learn the world right along with your kids, and you find yourself understanding maps so much better.

For instance, many people have a vague understanding about hemispheres but don’t REALLY grasp how it all works. Like how the tropics got their name or what the prime meridian is all about.

Honestly, it can be hard to find a map that illustrates most of these things.

But we have several great ones in Let’s Go Geography.

These maps make it easy for kids to have those “Aha!” moments about the fundamentals of geography.

Maps with hemispheres. Latitude. Longitude. And maps that are so crystal clear that kids can easily understand how everything works together.

And we’ve selected 1 of the best to give to you!

Today’s gift map is an IMMENSE help when teaching the equator, prime meridian, hemispheres, coordinates—even the North & South Poles!

Plus it will give you a little taste of what Let’s Go Geography is all about.


Remember, the map is part of the Let’s Go Geography curriculum, an activity-oriented curriculum that lets kids explore almost 90 DIFFERENT countries over 3 years.

So hurry & download your Free Map today!

You’ve heard of Paul Revere, but have you heard of Susanna Bolling? At sixteen, Susanna is like America in rebellion, craving independence. While her brothers fight for the patriots, she longs for more than tedious chores and spinning bees in sleepy Virginia. When British General Cornwallis invades her family’s Bollingbrook Plantation, she overhears his plan to capture French General Lafayette and crush the cause for liberty. Although terrified for her safety, Susanna summons her bravery to warn Lafayette. But can she sneak from the house, make her way through the darkness, find Lafayette, and make it back by sunrise without detection?  

Based on the TRUE story of revolutionary courage, Susanna’s Midnight Ride: The Girl Who Won the Revolutionary War, captivates readers of all ages. The Virginia General Assembly designated December 5 as "Susanna Bolling Day" in Virginia.


In Dolley Madison and the War of 1812, the First Lady faces a bitterly divided Washington City when James Madison becomes our fourth president. The prospect of war against Great Britain threatens to destroy the fragile American republic. The “Presidentess” hosts open parties in the President’s house to unite political foes and cultivate an American identity. 


When President Madison declares war with disastrous results, Dolley carries on, ignoring many threats. However, as British soldiers march toward Washington City, she becomes their target. Now America’s second War of Independence hinges on her. What must she do to save the United States and herself?

Why Is It So Important to Teach America’s Founding Principles?

Studies show that Americans today do not possess adequate civic knowledge about our nation’s founding history, principles, and governing institutions. This widespread deficiency is a serious matter in a self-governing republic such as ours, which relies on an educated citizenry to govern itself. If these trends continue, America will not be able to endure as designed by our Founders.

The American Heritage Education Foundation (AHEF) is a trusted non-profit organization that provides FREE, award-winning, patriotic K-12 lesson plans and teaching resources—on America's founding documents, history, and philosophy—for teachers and homeschoolers. AHEF also provides signature, critically-acclaimed readings on the Bible’s historical influence on America’s governing principles and values. These supplemental resources will strengthen any K-12 curriculum in Social Studies, U.S. History, U. S. Government, Civics, American Philosophy & Political Thought, Western Civilization, & Historical Influence of the Bible.  

With AHEF’s resources, students will better understand America’s founding ideas and values, what it means to be an American and their own responsibilities as citizens. As a result, they will more likely become productive, contributing members of society, participate in civic activities and be well-informed voters. These outcomes benefit our nation and the future.

AHEF’s resources are available as free PDF downloads or for purchase in print on AHEF’s website,
