    Learning new things is easier for young students when tied in to a common theme. That's why unit studies are so popular and successful. So what about Galloping the Globe? It's a unit study centered around geography. It encourages a detailed look at a selection of countries from the six populated continents as well as the North and South Poles and Christmas around the world. Using the countries being studied geographically as the basic platform, the authors have included ideas and references, projects and activities for integrating Bible, people/history, science, literature, vocabulary, internet sources, maps & flags, cooking, music/art, games, puzzles, and crafts into the curriculum. An aspect to this unit study which is similar to the Trail Guide to… series is the student notebook approach, where the child will actually produce a notebook full of art projects, reports, biographies, geographic dictionary pages, and much more. This is intended to be something they can show to other people, reinforcing and reviewing what they have learned as they explain various facts to friends and family. This is a fairly flexible course, with a full study of every topic listed taking between two and three years to complete. You can also pick and choose projects to simply make this a year long course. While geography is the main focus of this unit study, it does a good job of including the resources needed to study the other subjects, too. Answers are included and the consumable work pages are reproducible (and are also now found on the included CD-ROM in PDF format, which makes it even easier to use with multiple children). There are several recommended resources which are used multiple times throughout the course. If you are interested in purchasing these, please see below. Items without prices are those that we do not currently carry. The resource list has been recently revised to accommodate for items that were going out of print, and several new resources have been added. This is the newest version, revised in 2010 with a CD-ROM of printable forms, activity sheets, maps and flags. CD is Win/Mac compatible; requires Adobe Reader (a free download). 266 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    What’s your favorite school subject?  Geography?  Well, um, er...no.  That attitude could change with this guide, brainchild of Maggie Hogan (co-author of Hands-on Geography) and Cindy Wiggers (of Geography Matters).  This curriculum is designed to incorporate geography with other school subjects so that it will be relevant and memorable, not isolated and disjointed.  First, the authors impart enthusiasm for the subject matter, give the teacher a geography refresher course, and then provide practical, interesting, even (dare I say it) fun ways to intertwine geography with other subjects.  Included are teaching tips, geography basics, lesson plans, reproducible activity pages and outline maps, a timeline with 300+ figures, all in a convenient digital PDF format, accessible with the serial number found on the inside back cover of the book.  Chapter 7 includes a unit study for Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates, so you will need a copy of that book as well. As protection for the overachieving teacher, a scope and sequence limits the amount of activities to be used in any one year. Please note that all printables are included online as downloadable PDFs, making the the book itself much smaller. All forms, resources and consumables that are available as PDFs are noted as such in the margins of the book. Just register the serial number inside the back cover and you will receive a link to download the PDFs. With so many tips, activity suggestions, lesson plans and more for grades K-12, this is a well-designed and helpful product.

    This book literally blazes a trail through geography - all you have to do is follow it! Cindy Wiggers has done a terrific job of combining questions, mapping, and other activities into a fun, easy-to-teach approach to geography. Intended as a thirty-six week program, the first twenty-seven of these include a variety of activities. The first weeks encompass the world as a whole; then you focus on different regions continent by continent. Within each week there are several different methods of learning. One of these, Geography Trails, provides questions four days a week that will improve the student's ability to use maps to locate countries, capitals, bodies of water, and landforms, teach them valuable geography terms and learn many geography facts. Different questions are given for grades 2-4, 5-7, and 8-10, so that you can use this book for children at different levels at the same time. The questions are based on the content of three recommended atlases (one for each age group) which are listed in the key resources below. Additional geography activities for every week are in the form of "Points of Interest," where you can take time to learn more extensively. Activities to choose from include mapping, researching, suggestions for art projects, and weekly projects to compile into your very own geography notebook. Then it's Geography through Literature for the last nine weeks as you read through Around the World in 80 Days. Questions for each chapter are provided, as are ideas for additional research and spelling and vocabulary words. Happy trails!

    Please note that that this course provides a framework for studying world geography, and relies on additional resources for reference, maps, and activities. Required resources include: Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne (if you are planning on completing the literature portion of the study) and one or more of the recommended atlases (depending on the age of the student(s). Three other "key" recommended resources you will rely heavily on for many of the activities include the Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide, Uncle Josh's Map Book (in book form, or CD-ROM), and Visual Manna's Teaching Geography Through Art (for the art in geography lessons). Although you could make the study work without these, they are often referred to in the lessons, and the program would work much more easily with them. These and other recommended resources are listed below. An almanac is also recommended, in case you don't have one on hand, we recommend the World Alamanac & Book of Facts. A Geographical Terms chart is also recommended; we are unable to offer this specific one, but it is available from Geography Matters. ~ Stephanie

    This unit study takes the hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach of Galloping the Globe and applies it to U.S. geography. This course is intended to teach students about the fifty states and the District of Columbia through six different subject areas and a couple of informational paragraphs. Each subject has a very state-specific application: geography – physical and topical forms located in the state; science – state trees, birds, flowers, rocks/minerals, and many other science related topics that are important to each state; language arts – based on the preamble for each state's constitution; history/biography – historical figures, leaders, authors, artists, and others connected to the state; literature – set in the states, written by an author from the state, or relating to some other aspect of the state; and Bible – using the motto for each state to help in character development. There are also mapping activities and hands-on projects for each state, as well as internet resources that may be useful. A CD-ROM accompanies the book, including over 150 reproducible outline maps, word searches, crossword puzzles, and other puzzles and activities to be used throughout the study. The appendix of the book also contains reproducible forms for character traits (character study and development being an important aspect of this course), state symbols, state science charts, order of statehood, state report, recipes for making maps, biography report, animal report, geography dictionary, state flag pledges, state notebook, and travel & tourism information. As far as teaching tips, the first section contains overviews and tips on each of the subject areas, suggestions for the general activities, website resources, a more detailed language arts guide, teacher preparation points, and ideas for adapting the course for use by older students. Cantering the Country can be adapted to take anywhere from 1 to 3 years. 255 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Following the same great format as Trail Guide to World Geography (see description), this book focuses on U.S. Geography. This trail guide includes 5-minute daily drills, mapping, building a geography notebook--or using the optional student notebook--and a wide variety of additional projects. The literature unit in this book focuses on the Lewis and Clark expedition, using the book The Captain's Dog, by Roland Smith. Heavily used resources include the Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book or maps available on the Student Notebook CD. Other resources are also recommended to help enhance the study; these are listed below for your convenience. In this edition, all students use the Desk Atlas of the United States. A Geographical Terms Chart is recommended with these and all Trail Guide studies. We do not offer the chart that is recommended; however, it is available through Geography Matters. This Trail Guide was revised and updated in 2015 and includes a new QuickStart Section and new assignments throughout. Please note: students must use 2ed of Student Notebook with this edition. ~ Rachel S.

    Have your children's interests been piqued by all the "It's the Economy, Stupid" discussions revolving around the Presidential scandal? I didn't think so, but if you want a short course that will teach them about the workings of our economy anyway, here it is. This student worktext explains basic economic theory, discusses how the economy effects our lives, touches on our relationship with the economy of the world, and explores consumer economics. Economic concepts presented include Supply and Demand; The Stock Market; Money and Banking; Credit, Debt, and Savings; Inflation, Recession, and Depression; Taxation; The Role of Government Spending and Borrowing; and The Interaction of Business, Labor, and Government. The text is interactive, with questions for students to respond to quesas they read. The questions and exercises are well-conceived and thought-provoking, helping students think critically and develop an understanding of how the concepts presented apply to their lives. A chapter on The Economy and You brings it even closer to home, covering personal and family finance. Includes an assessment test, answers, and a glossary. This course will take 9 weeks or so to complete.
