What is Geography - Starting KS3!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Alhamdulillaah we started off Secondary level for geography with Maimoonah. The textbook we have chosen is maashaa Allaah very nice and very easy to use, There is a lot of information but all of them are concise and interesting. 

The first chapter of the book is What is Geography. We discussed the definitions and talked about how learning geography would help us as Muslims. And here is what Maimoonah came up with, She also wanted to do a scene with felts for this notebooking. 

Then we used this beautiful pack about Landforms to learn more about physical geography and different landforms. 

Landform Layer Book

To remember at a glance about different types of geographies Maimoonah did this note booking with simple definitions and added examples for each type of geography to make it easy. 

Next, we learnt about finding out places and how to use GPS Locations.

We learnt in details about longitude and latitudes and how to find them for each location. 

We used the Mapping Skills with Google Earth and read more about GPS Location on google and talked about real time scenarios as we are so accustomed to using pin locations to go to places over here and many times easily get lost otherwise, Alhamdulillaah! 

Then we learnt about using graphs in geography and the different graphs used for different purposes. And the use of bar graph, line graph, pie graph, and scatter graph. 


Finally, the chapter ends with value and use of all the different types of geographies.

 At the co-op, the kids were asked to do Landform Diorama. Maimoonah chose to do rain forest, but she has not been able to complete it yet. Inshaa Allaah she hopes to do it soon and we can update with the image. Other kids have done their diorama maashaa Allaah. Will update with their pics as well later.

So Alhamdulillaah KS3 geography seems interesting and Maimoonah likes it too. We have been using lot of other books for geography over the years and Maashaa Allaah this textbook is in the format that I was looking for , for a very long time. Finally, something nice to work with especially at this level.

Love for Growth!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalaamu Alaikum

Alhamdulillaah, more and more families are realising and earnestly striving to nurture their young children with the correct ilm (knowledge) and tarrbiyah (cultivation) from the very beginning of their childhood. 

Since we started our Homeschool Support Program, I have been receiving numerous emails from families inquiring about the packs and books and many families will be using the packs soon with their children, Inshaa Allaah.

What I also noticed is that there are many more families who are eager to use the same packs but are not able to afford the cost involved. 

And Alhamdulillaah what fills our hearts even more is that, there are many individuals who are looking for opportunities to earn continuous rewards for themselves and their families by spending and sponsoring those families who are unable to afford the cost for our materials. 

Therefore we have set up "Love for Growth" - a project that would help those who are in need of our materials to educate their children but are unable to afford the cost.

Those who are interested in contributing may get in touch by emailing me at with the subject heading - "Love for Growth". 

Share the Khayr Inshaa Allaah. Spread the word around and reach the families who are striving to educate their kids! 

May Allaah accept this from us. Aameen
