This is my complete collection of 48 original songs covering all the countries of the world and information relevant to world geography such as continents, seas and oceans, hemispheres, latitude and longitude, and boundaries between Asia and Europe. In 2015, this collection was commissioned by a private school and is now available to all educators.
Each track combines easy to follow melodies and attractive harmonies inspired by the regions represented in the song. Additionally, the countries are clearly pronounced in the order they appear on a map, in most songs. By dividing the countries into small regions, each single track features no more than nine countries. This provides students with musical variety, more manageable lists of information to memorize, frequent repetition of countries within each song, and context as to where to locate each country.
In addition to over an hour of music, this download includes:
- Planning guides and lyrics for the six major regions, including Americas, Oceania, Asia, Europe, Africa, and World Geography
After purchase, you can download each track as an Mp3 and playback in most media browsers, such as iTunes. Planning Guides are downloaded as a PDF.
To preview the music, select and download the selection of individual tracks for free on TPT.
Personally, this project has been a joy to create and I am thrilled to share it with you. It is a great resource for any parent or teacher interested in an easy, enjoyable way to teach geography. I have four very young children and we listen to these songs in the car. They picked up the information within weeks and now my oldest, who is six years old, can recite all the countries of the world...and so can I!
