    Have you ever stopped to realize that a comprehensive understanding of the earth, its structure, and its inhabitants are a necessary foundation for interacting meaningfully with our increasingly global-minded world? Taking an overview approach, the North Star Geography course covers geography skills (reading maps, using geographic tools, cartography, surveying, and navigation), physical geography (geology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, hydrology, and astronomy), and human geography (sociology, culture, religion, transportation, agriculture, government, and economics). Bright Ideas Press and world geography – what a great idea! Student Reader plus Companion Guide CD-ROM (activities: maps, hands-on, research options, quizzes/tests) – what a great idea! Quality content, Biblical worldview, and user-friendliness all rolled up into one package – what a great idea!

    Obviously, the Student Reader is the heart of the course. Each of the sixteen lessons provides 15-20 pages of reading text, full-color illustrations, photos, sidebar articles, and maps. Lessons are divided into teaching segments which are both highly readable and interesting. The organization lends itself to flexibility, and the course could be done over one year (two weeks per lesson), two years (four weeks per lesson), or even one semester (one week per lesson – a bare bones approach). Vocabulary words are in bold with definitions provided in the glossary at the end of the text. The Reader concludes with a reference list that provides options for further study.

    The accompanying Companion Guide CD-ROM (pdf files) provides both basic and "extra" activities in addition to all content from the Reader. It's these pdf files that will allow you to tailor the course for high school, for junior high, or for a combination of ages. Families may make photocopies or print pages as needed, but classrooms and co-ops should contact the publisher for a multiple-use license. Depending on the course time-frame you choose, you will probably have to do some selection of activities, as there is a wealth provided.

    • • Hands-On Activities – there is lots of variety here – some short and simple, some more involved. Materials lists are provided when necessary (and tend to be easy-to-get items).
    • • Build Your Own Atlas – there's a segment for each lesson that includes labeling outline maps, completing fact files, and creating a set of political, physical, and thematic maps. Outline maps are provided but a good atlas as a reference is helpful (i.e. Wondermaps or Atlas of World Geography).
    • • Note-Taking Pages – each lesson has a set of 10 questions taken from the text that serve as lesson review and a study guide for the quizzes.
    • • Memorization Lists – a list of 198 countries, 70 regions and physical features to learn – roughly 16 items per lesson.
    • • Research Questions – a set of questions for each continent which encourage the student to conduct his own research (answers included).
    • • Quizzes and Tests – quizzes for each lesson (based on note-taking questions and map work). A final exam includes questions taken from all 16 of the lessons (answer keys and grading rubrics included).
    • • Graphic Organizers - can be used for all types of studies – world/continent, country, culture, regional geography, and government fact files.

    Homeschool geography courses have tended to be research frameworks that can be used by multi-age students and over several years. While having lots of advantages for families they require planning, preparation, and, often, outside resources. North Star takes a different approach providing a very solid base of textual information but giving lots of options for additional activities and research. It provides all necessary forms and pages, requiring only a good world atlas to accompany the course. ~ Janice

    Tired of exposing your children to evolutionary "facts" while studying the countries of our world? Well, no more! Master Books, in partnership with My Father's World, provides this quality resource designed to enhance our study of the world from a Christian perspective.

    Each of the seven continents is represented with highlights of more well-know nations. Information typically found in a quality atlas is included like landmarks, rivers, countries/capitals, flags, peoples, distinctive animals, biomes and the physical characteristic of the land. Unique to this atlas is the information on Christian history, people of faith and Christian traditions around the globe. For example, in the section on Saudia Arabia we read, "One of the first church buildings ever constructed has been found here by archaeologists. Built around the 4th century, it has come to be called the Jubail Church. Many congregations of Christians once thrived here until they were killed or driven out by the growth of Islam at the end of the first millennium…" The other distinctive feature you will appreciate is the lack of evolutionary timeline dating. Additional resources found in the back of the book include a glossary, definitions of government systems, holidays around the world, and detailed index. Vividly illustrated with photographs and full color maps, children will be eager to learn more about God's world. Oversized HC. 96 ps. ~Deanne

    This Rand McNally Atlas is colorful and appealing for middle-grade students. The atlas begins with a Discoverer's Tools section that introduces students to map reading and terminology such as map projections, directions, grid systems, legends, and symbols. Next is a world maps section with physical, political, climate, environment, and population density maps. The U.S. maps section includes even more types of maps, with physical, political, climate, environment, population density, and time zone maps. A Regions of the United States contains close-up, detailed regional maps along with a narrative overview and captioned photos of landmarks and charts pertaining to unique topics of interest within the region. The text is large and readable, with bold vocabulary words keyed to an index. "Time to Explore" boxes scattered throughout the atlas challenge students to use map reading skills to answer questions. The final section of the atlas, Settlement of the United States, begins with a timeline showing the population growth of our country. Maps showing U.S. population changes are included, such as Native American homelands, routes to the New World, the original thirteen colonies, and immigration patterns. The back of the book includes state tables with statistics (i.e., population, population rank, area in square miles, year admitted to the Union, capital city). A glossary is included. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    This colorful atlas is a great way to introduce students to the basic geographic features of the United States. The atlas is divided into several sections. The first section, Map Skills, explains how to read a map. It briefly covers the topics of scale, latitude/longitude, and different types of map projections. The next section, U.S. Themes, has a political map, physical map, and themed maps that show climate, elevation, average temperature, land use, population density, and more. The United States History section presents maps that represent places, populations, or events at different times in our country's history. For example, there are maps that show the routes of early explorers, battles of the American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, and the Vietnam War. The U.S. Regions section takes a closer look at six areas of the country - the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, West, and D.C., Puerto Rico and other islands. Each region has a political map, images of state flags, list of largest cities, and small thematic maps that show land use, population density, and average temperature/precipitation. An index at the end of the section gives the page number, latitude, and longitude for cities, landforms and bodies of water. The book concludes with the Atlas section, which contains political and physical maps of the world, the Western Hemisphere, the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. It also has a map of U.S. time zones and an index. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    First published in 1923, this atlas has gone on to become the number-one college reference atlas used in the United States. Probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date atlas of world geography that we sell, this one will meet all your needs from a basic reference tool for finding countries, capitals, cities, mountains, rivers, and oceans, to a detailed study on, quite literally, hundreds of different aspects of worldwide geography. The atlas is divided into three sections: World Maps, Regional Maps, and Tables and Indexes. The World Maps section is a collection of dozens and dozens of mostly thematic maps, but it also includes a political world map, a physical world map, and three ocean floor maps. The Regional Maps section then looks at each of the continents in turn, as well as the major oceans and polar regions. North America is more closely studied than the others, with 76 pages of thematic maps of the US providing an in-depth look at the geographic aspects of employment, transportation, climate, and other topics; over 140 pages of reference maps are devoted to the other continents, oceans, and polar regions. The final section contains the tables of statistics, glossary of foreign geographical terms, abbreviations and pronunciations of geographic names, 30,000 longitude and latitude locations, and a subject index that no atlas would be without. Complete, colorful, and up-to-date, this atlas is a very easy-to-use resource that will help every reader or student of geography get to know our world. 426 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Did I hear someone say comprehensive? That's a fitting word for this 384-page atlas by the National Geographic Society. Since I'm going to need a lot of space to tell you all about this one, I'm going to get started right away. We'll begin with the usual couple of pages on how to use the atlas, though if you've ever picked an atlas up before, you'll find this one to be as logical and straight-forward as any other. After the "how to" section, we start in on world geography. This section has maps of the physical world and the political world and the hemispheres and poles, and it goes on to cover the structure of the earth, earth's rocky exterior, world landforms, the surface of the earth, world land cover, world climate, world weather, world biosphere, world biodiversity, world population, world languages, world religions, world health and education, conflict and terror around the world, world economy, world trade, world food, world energy, world minerals, environmental stresses, world protected lands, technology and globalization, and the internet. This whole section gives an amazing overview of the world as a whole - ready to launch us into the next seven sections which each look at one of the seven continents in detail. The maps in these sections are in full color, showing towns and cities, roadways, rivers, lakes, mountains, and the like. There are also little fact boxes containing facts like area, population, religion, life expectancy, literacy, flag, and more for each country or state shown on that page. Each continent is introduced with some incredible photography and clear text including brief details of the continent's physical geography, history, culture, and economy. So we get through Antarctica in this way, and there are still a lot of pages left before we reach the back cover. Here's what you'll find: sections on the oceans and space, and an appendix which I'll outline for you a little later. What exactly do these last two sections contain? World oceanography; limits of the oceans and seas; floor maps of the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, and Arctic Oceans; and the ocean around Antarctica are all part of the oceans section; while the space section will introduce you to some things you have probably never come across before. These are maps of both sides of the moon, a map of Mars, a map of the solar system, a look at the planets, and a 3D structure showing the universe and, in four stages, where our galaxy is to be found. There is a space exploration timeline, and then the appendix. The appendix is loaded with good material, including: airline distances in kilometers (major cities only), abbreviations, metric conversions, geographic comparisons, political entities and status, special flags, foreign terms, world time zones, major cities of the world (lists population and country), world temperature and rainfall, glossary of geographic terms, and a 94-page index (which includes an index of Moon locations). This atlas will serve you well in more ways than you probably ever thought you would need. Its large 10.5" x 14" format and quality hardcover binding will stand the test of time and help keep this atlas looking attractive for years to come. 2nd edition. ~ Zach

    A reprint of the original 1917 edition by H.E. Marshall, this hefty book offers 99 exciting stories from American history, starting with the expeditions of the Vikings and Columbus, and ending with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. The stories are grouped into seven parts; "Stories of Explorers and Pioneers," "Stories of Virginia," "Stories of New England," "Stories of the Middle and Southern Colonies," "Stories of the French in America," "Stories of the Struggle for Liberty" and "Stories of the United States Under the Constitution." The book is unique in that the first 400 pages or so focus on exploration and the Colonial period, while only the last 200 pages cover the history of the U.S. as its own country. Although there is a lot of content here, the chapters are only several pages in length which make for great supplementary reading or read-alouds. Occasional black-and-white full-page illustrations are included in some chapters. 616 pgs, pb. – Jess

    A cursory glance through this curriculum elicits several descriptive words: detail, depth, creativity, and flexibility. This course combines a textual history of maps and map-making with innumerable activities. Through hand-drawn and edible maps, star charts and video documentaries, games and watercolors, students will see the world portrayed not only as an atlas shows it but also in a way that can't be contained between the covers of a book. There are 60 pages of historical readings (well illustrated with photos, maps, and drawings) which chronicle exploration and mapping from the time of the earliest maps through the 1800s. Accompanying these readings are 90 pages of drawing lessons that guide students step-by-step through freehand drawings of islands, countries, continents, and other geographic locales. There are also over 100 pages of supplemental activities including review worksheets, games, art and craft activities, links to online videos (map projections, virtual tours of globe factories, bios of explorers, etc.), and quizzes. Additional resources supplied with the book are DVDs that contain actual drawing lessons for the map drawing activities and a printable PDF version of the curriculum. While the drawing lessons don't have you labeling every single island, river, or mountain on the planet, the detail of the coastlines, borders, major cities, and main geographic features is such that you should be well prepared for the final project: drawing your own map of the world. Colorful and distinct, this curriculum has enough variance for both the eager and reticent cartographer.

    Filling a niche between our small and standard-sized globes is this handy globe that measures 6" in diameter. It's a colorful political globe with oceans shown in light blue and readable labels. Countries, bodies of water, continents, and many large cities are labeled. In general, individual states or provinces are not labeled. The durable plastic globe is supported on a black plastic stand which allows the globe to spin. This globe is great if you're looking for something in between smaller desk globes and larger standard globes. ~ Rachel

    Accessible. Informative. Practical. This section-by -section look at the U.S. Constitution is designed to provide background information and unpack the meaning of this document that has defined our country. The remarkable author, fourteen year old Juliette Turner, provides appropriate interpretative data to make the eighteenth century wording relevant to twenty-first century youth. For instance, Article I, Section 8, Clause 18 (the "Necessary and Proper" Clause) is first stated in its exact form. Then it's summarized with its "Bottom Line". Other sections that shed light on the passage include: "What Were They Thinking?", "Why Should I Care?", "Breakin' It Down", "How Can I Make a Difference?", and "What Has It Done For Me Lately?" Sidebar information includes a brief historical footnote about why Thomas Jefferson was against this clause and his illustration of how it could be misused. An interesting aspect of this book is the thought-provoking questions it poses. For instance, after mentioning a recent related Supreme Court case, it then asks the question of whether Jefferson's fears were justified. The overall format of the book contributes to its understandability. Information is broken down into manageable portions, and graphics depicting certain types of information are consistent throughout the book. Thorough and comprehensive coverage, coupled with insightful analysis and practical application, makes this an excellent choice for a well-grounded study of the Constitution. 224 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    The story of the Vietnam War is a complicated one, and one that I still find a little confusing myself. Author Albert Marrin must have found it equally so. As he writes in his introduction, although he lived during the war and had actively followed the news at the time, he ended up spending months - even years - researching for this book, reading hundreds of books, articles, and personal accounts of the war, as well as interviewing men who had served during the war. And I believe that the results of so much research were well worth the effort and go a long way in helping readers better understand the conflict itself, as well as the bigger picture. To help readers get a feel for the country and its people, Marrin starts his story back at the early settlement of Vietnam, and the long-continuing struggle of the Vietnamese to remain independent from their Northern neighbor, China. He continues his story with the French colonization of the area, the spread of Communism into Vietnam, the "splitting" of Vietnam into two general parts, and all the developments in between and beyond that attributed to the buildup of the war. Marrin's writing is absorbing, full of details that make it seem as if readers were there, and is almost hard to put down. Occasional maps and black-and-white photos add visual interest as well. Overall, a thorough and well-written account of what is often thought of as a somewhat "uncomfortable" topic in our history. - Jess

    Learn the history behind our country's most important places, interesting objects, national holidays, and inspiring words with this colorful book. It begins by defining the meaning of the word "symbol," then progresses to explaining the meaning and historical background of over twenty US symbols. Plymouth Rock, the Statue of Liberty, our flag, the Liberty Bell, the Declaration of Independence, and the National Anthem are some of the topics covered. Each topic is explained in about two to four pages and is enhanced with colorful (sometimes humorous) illustrations. The last section of the book explains the origin of nine US holidays, including the date each was first celebrated. The back of the book includes a glossary, index, list of books to read, and a dedication page explaining the symbolism of New York's World Trade Center and 9/11/01.

    Wow, this book provides tons of open-ended activities and forms that are great for supplementing any geography study and target a variety of ages, abilities, and learning styles. Reproducible maps and worksheets are provided for all the continents and countries (many of the countries are lumped together in regional maps), including a few entire world maps and worksheets. Arranged by continent, each continental section begins with a political and physical map of the continent, along with worksheets designed to give students an overview of the continent and guide them in mapping geographical and political features of that area. Then, regional maps and country-specific worksheets are included that prompt students to research and map features like the capital, current population, major religions, climate, major resources, bordering nations, and so much more. The worksheets for most countries are fairly identical, so students will be researching the same types of information for each country. The information itself is not included in the book, so students will need a reference like an atlas, encyclopedia, or the Internet to complete the worksheets and mapping. Over fifty maps are included in all, which cover the whole world and identify mountains, rivers, and lakes with hand-drawn illustrations, but do not label the features. Additional mapping activity ideas, vocabulary lists, and teaching ideas for using the worksheets are also included in the book. With maps to label and informative worksheets to complete for every country, this useful, completely reproducible book is a perfect supplement to any geography study. 352 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

       Constant vigilance. It’s necessary to protect the religious freedom that we have known in America. The path to our religious freedoms was not easy; they must not be taken for granted. They were borne out of the religious persecution that the founders of our country had known. They were borne out of the religious persecution that was known throughout western civilization from the 16th through the 18th centuries. Contrary to the common misperception that our religious liberty was the result of Enlightenment thinking, Michael Farris instead shows how it traces back to William Tyndale and his efforts to get God’s Word into the hands of the common people. Chapter by well-researched chapter, through the writings of kings, clergymen, commoners, and colonists, the story develops, culminating in the battle for the Bill of Rights in the late 18th century. At many times, it’s a sad story of Christians called to lay down their lives for the gospel and its freedoms, but it’s also a story of God’s amazing grace and provision. 510 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    Want a great resource to help introduce your children to some of the countries and people groups throughout the world? This book, in each two page spread, will do just that! Our introduction to Hazara, for example, had the following: a history telling us that the Hazara people are descendants of Genghis Khan's army, a piece on life in Hazarajat (the region in Afghanistan where the Hazara live), color photographs of people and places, a factfile containing facts about where Hazaras live and how many there are in the world, a story about a Hazara refugee who became a Christian convert, two maps, a Did You Know? piece on the religion of the Hazara, a list of things we can thank God for (one item on the list was the Christian radio programs in Dari, a language most Hazara people know) and a list of things we should ask God for. Other people we learn about include Gypsies, New Zealanders, Azerians, Greecians, Jolas, Refugees and Street Children (in general), and Uruguayans etc. While reading about terrible cruelties and conditions in other countries, the book still maintains an amazing optimism as it shares answered prayers in various countries and faith in God. 221 pgs, pb. ~ Genevieve

    Children will delight in learning about our 50 states (and the District of Columbia) as they devour this quirky book that teaches a bit of history, folklore, geography and ornithology. The state birds are the respective guides to each state and their witty quips along with the fun illustrations offer a completely unique journey through this country! With so much personality from each bird, the competition to be the “Top Tweet” in the United Tweets of America pageant is tight! Each state is covered per 2 pages. An outline of the state is at the top of the page, with a star marking the location of the capital. The state capital and nickname are given, and of course each bird is identified along with brief characteristics.  Additionally, each state page includes tidbits that are fun and will appeal to kids, for example: Montana has the largest grizzly bear population in the lower 48 states and the largest migratory elk population in the U.S. The elk, deer and antelope populations each outnumber the humans.

    This large, square, hardcover book by Lynne Cheney gives a random and interesting history of America that both kids and parents will enjoy. Each page of the book highlights a letter and then explains what it stands for.
