That’s why we celebrate National Geographic’s Geography Awareness Week every third week in November (the 16th-22nd in 2014). To mark the occasion, we’ve got some marvelous geography math activities – and you won’t need safari gear or heavy winter coats to enjoy them!

In honor of our Crazy 8s club, we’re bringing you 3 wild water games to squeeze the last drop of fun out of summer. On that note, we’re pleased to introduce our latest free downloadable printable, Math with a Splash!
