A Day at Path To Shine

Geography is important, and every child should have the opportunity to understand how big the world is. In addition to providing understanding of Earth and where folks are located, geography encourages children to imagine. Under served children may not have opportunities to travel and see distant places, but studying geography gets them one step closer to understanding our diverse, beautiful world and the people that live in it. Studying geography allows children to dream and make goals for travel. "Kid, you’ll move mountains! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way!" -Dr. Seuss
