Dine Out and Learn Geography

If you’re looking for a way to get your seventh grader interested in geography, (besides just playing some really cool geography games online, lol) then dining out might be the answer. Huh? How can food help at all with learning geography? Believe it or not, it did in our situation. Our oldest didn’t have much interest in geography at all. But he did love to try new foods, and when he started asking about where particular dishes came from, we knew what we had to do. From spaghetti to fried chicken, we’ve been exploring the world through food. It’s helped a lot with geography, but it’s also helped to introduce him to cultural studies too. And it’s broadened his palate at the same time!
