I am pretty sure this will be a wonderful addition to Cycle 3 for Classical Conversations Geography for your family this coming year! Get your subscription today! We just received our first month with our suitcase and passports! The boys are super excited to get started! We are using this as a sibling study this year, eldest daughter is in charge and she is setting up the Little Passports USA “center” for the boys. Once/month, when the subscription arrives in the mail, she will “teach” the boys the information provided as well as review all the states they are learning in Geography for Cycle 3! (Pictures will be posted as soon as big sister finishes setting up the area!)
