Geography Awareness Week
This week it’s Geography Awareness Week! National Geographic created Geography Awareness Week to raise awareness to the shortage in American education and excite people about geography as both a discipline and as a part of everyday life! The Cats at Banjo HQ LOVE the awareness being raised and want to make it GLOBAL! As we’re sure you’re aware, Banjo is a globe-trotting cat and we love sharing lots of useful information with you from all over the world. If you’d like your children to learn more about geography this awareness week, we thought we’d share some resources for you:
