Geography Awareness Week November 12-18, 2006
Every year since 1987, National Geographic and other organizations have celebrated "geography awareness" during the third week of November, promoting the importance of geography in the U.S. and Canada. (Geography Awareness Week also includes GIS Day.)
This year, My Wonderful World is kicking off a multiyear, around-the-world program to engage everyone in learning about the diversity of our planet's people, places, and natural wonders. Our first stop is Africa! Below are Africa-related events and resources for educators, parents, and kids alike. Get started—and see what wonders you can discover.
