What started out as a little idea, has been growing, yes, I am talking about my Geography/History Carnival. I have been asked many questions from bloggers who are discovering this Carnival and wanting to join in. Since this is a busy week for Selena and I with appointments, and then with colds, I thought I would take a moment to answer some of these questions that I have received.

This carnival did start out as a small idea for a postcard exchange, which Selena and I enjoyed very much, both receiving and mailing postcards. It has now evolved into a weekly carnival, a place to share what we are teaching in geography and history. I know we enjoy venturing out among all the blogs who join the carnival, to see into their lessons and sometimes we learn something we didn’t even know. It has been a lot of fun!

I want to make sure that everyone knows that this is an open carnival for anyone that has a geography or history related lesson they have done with their children. This can be in the source of actual classroom activities or travel. If you have older posts that fall into geography or history, then yes, you most certainly can link them up as well. I also want to let you know my post is always up on Wednesday morning by 4:30 a.m. Pacific time.

My only request is that you let your readers know that you are linking to my carnival either by using my button found in my side bar, or you may link directly using Children Grow Children Explore Children Learn with it linked back to my blog.

I do get around and visit everyone’s post and will comment. I do ask if you should have any questions, please leave me a way to answer your question preferably via email. If you have your email hidden, feel free to email your questions to me and I will respond. My email can be found in my profile and also in my side bar.

Thank you to all who have participated, continue to participate and for showing an interest in wanting to participate, without you this carnival would not be what it is.

We should be back on track next week, with another geography or history post ourselves. In the meanwhile we look forward to seeing and reading all that you are doing in your homes.

  1. I love this carnival and wish I had more time to visit all the entries. As it is I have trouble catching up with WMCIR entries :( I hope you feel better soon.

  2. Hopefully it all gets better soon, as well as your printer. Mine's behaving itself now.


  3. We really love this carnival and we love doing geography lessons. Thank you for doing this! This week we talked about Alaska, but I didn't get a chance to write about it. I think we'll do some more on that state and write it up next week.
