Dollygirl's sixth-grade geography class--at least the formal part--is meant to be done once a week, on her own. I am combining some resources we have to make a study guide that will cover the first two terms of the school year. I'll probably add in things like online quizzes and videos, when we get there.
Here's a sample:
