Geography Songs for Everyone features:
- Countries in geographical order– Songs sing through the countries in the order they appear on a map. As a result, students learn country name and proper placement.
- Small groupings – To aid memorization, countries are divided and grouped into small regions. Each song highlights no more than seven countries.
- Geographical context – Most songs feature lyrics that offer context regarding the location of the region and/or its global significance.
- Geographical terminology– General geographical terminology is inserted throughout the songs, ie. isthmus, as well as specific landmarks, ie, Lake Titicaca, to spark conversations and further study.
- Diverse musical themes– Each song is inspired by the region highlighted. This results in a wide variety of melodies, harmonies, and rhythms throughout the collection to keep the ear engaged.
- Simple accompaniment– Each track is produced without accompaniment that can deter from accurately hearing the lyrics and country pronunciation.
- Repetition– Most songs feature repetition of the countries as well as the region name to help listeners pick up on the place names and practice singing along.
