Geography Awareness Week stresses the importance of local and global geography. It is sponsored by the Geography Education Program of the National Geographic Society. Held during the third week in November since 1987, this year’s week runs from November 10 to November 16.  One easy but very informative activity is the Global Closet Calculator, where children locate the origin of their clothing and shoes.
