My husband and I are having a debate about what exactly the subject of geography includes...

He says that it is merely the study of land-formations and the study of the earth's layers and things like that...isn't there more to it than that?

Go to http://www.4mylearn.org/C3_FRAMEWORK_FOR_SOCIAL_STUDIES.html#a5

for a table of what aspects of geography are expected to be learned by when.

This is how I did home school geography. Then as I got older my history class and geography overlapped. 

Quoting JadeTigr7:

We're doing World Geography right now.  We're learning about the continents, the biomes of the different countries within the continents, and about the people who live in the different countries.  We're also learning map and directional skills.My kids can now locate and identify far more countries than I could at their age.
