The Adventures of Mo is a free online program for people of all ages and backgrounds who want to be entertained while learning more about US geography and history.
Our program includes a variety of fun trivia questions that serve as the perfect dinner table conversation starters: for example, do you know which US state has a floating post office?
The Adventures of Mo eBook (Mo) powers the free program. Consider how this early reader book about geography and history can be used by the following populations:
Many chapters address childhood lessons that young children may be experiencing, like navigating friendship and understanding resiliency.
Consider asking questions like:
- How did Mo and Finchy (the story’s main characters) react?
- How could they have handled the situation differently?
- What would you have done in this situation?
Students can also learn cardinal or compass directions and fun facts about this country. For instance, did you know that Wyoming was the first state to grant women the right to vote? Or that California is bordered by 3 states, another country, AND an ocean?
Likewise, The Adventures of Mo’s website also features state blog posts that can serve as supplemental and valuable resources for kids when learning about the land, people and history of each state.
Read The Adventures of Mo to help strengthen literacy skills, especially to support students in the process of learning English. The chapters contain words that students learn in elementary school while informing readers about US geography and history.
As a free online children’s geography book, Mo can help non-native English speakers gain more knowledge about US states, US geography, US history and the country they may now call home.
Carol Patton, The Adventure of Mo’s creator, author and national award-winning journalist, talks to elementary school classes (via Zoom or on-site) about how writing can be F-U-N, and incorporates entertaining facts about geography or history into her presentations.
Patton also speaks to older students who are aspiring writers. Her talk focuses on the writing process and her experiences developing The Adventures of Mo.
While working with a teacher at a one-room schoolhouse, Patton helped motivate a student who was a reluctant writer to create and write a story of her own.
If you’re interested in having her talk to your students or class, contact Carol at: email@example.com
Invite Carol Patton to speak to parents in your community about launching a writing career and her experiences creating, writing and self-publishing The Adventures of Mo.
