Learning About Our Country ~ the United States

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .

The United States was the last country that we studied in our two year world geography study.  Since we were going to be doing Early American History in the upcoming year, we just did a general study to get the basics in ~ because really, there is SO much you could do!

The United States is the third largest country in the world and located on the continent of North America. There are six different regions in the US: New England, the mid-Atlantic, the South, the Midwest, Southwest, and the West.

You can view the other countries that we’ve studied from North America on my North America geography page. See the other countries that we’ve studied

  1. Hi,
    Great resources!! You saved me a lot of time here…what an inspiration-I see you make your own worksheets. :)
    Your Mapping US worksheet links to the jpg not pdf and prints kinda small can you check the link?

  2. Oh also the map of US you used for notebooking leads to Mapping Morocco :)

  3. Love these resources.  Thank you!
