A Geography Fair provides a creative approach to learning Geography. It
encourages students to explore topics in geography in more detail than
what can be covered in the classroom. Since most students have not had
opportunities to explore the world first hand, the Geography Fair is a way
to bring the world to them. Additionally, Geography Fairs help students:
Geography Fairs can be interdisciplinary. Geography is closely tied with
history as it provides important information about the past. Climate and
landforms influenced migration patterns, how the land was used, and even
the rise and fall of civilizations. Geography is also closely tied to
economics. Natural resources and transportation networks greatly impact
the economy of a region. Geography also studies the relationship between
people and the environment.

Geography Fairs also work well for homeschoolers. A group of homeschoolers
may want to get together and have a home school Geography Fair. If a
group is not available, you may have each member of the family choose a
country or region. Or you may choose to pick one country and have the
entire family study and explore that country together as a family.
Another alternative is to see if there is a local public school conducting
a Geography Fair and ask to participate with the school.
