Learning world geography is still a worthy undertaking, even in the age of instant access to Wikipedia. Studying world geography brings cultural awareness, higher self-esteem, and comfort with globalization. Children who study geography find world events easier to understand, and more interesting. What’s happening in Myanmar suddenly seems a bit more relevant when you know where Myanmar is. Your child will even have some fun; plus, a child who masters world geography is more interested in the world in general, and better informed. Learning geography inevitably produces a greater awareness of the lives of others, including their culture and history.
