    So, why are we offering another map outline book? Well, this one is different from the others, and we just couldn't decide which was "better", because they both would serve a slightly different user. The book begins with a Mercator Projection map of the world, followed by 45 different maps of individual countries or small clusters of countries (too many to list here). Unlike Maps, there is only one, unlabeled, map for each title, and waterways are clearly shown. An inset map of the region is included, with map's location darkened for easy reference. Also included on each page is the area covered by the map in square miles. The U.S. map is marked with state boundaries and waterways. Maps for each of the 50 states appear alphabetically, again with waterways and square miles shown. A U.S. map is inset on each page, clearly showing the location of that state in the U.S. by shading. Basically, there are significantly more country-specific maps in this book, helpful if you need more detailed maps of smaller regions. For example, Germany is its own map in this book whereas it's lumped in a "Northern Europe" map in Maps. In fact, Northern Europe is broken into about four different maps in Blank Map Outlines. None of the maps are labeled, however, so you'll need to refer to an atlas for labeling. The other major difference is the inclusion of waterways (rivers and lakes) in this outline book.

    With the same format as the U.S. Outline Map above, this twenty-page workbook provides blank maps with information for students to fill in. The first map is an overview of the continents and oceans for the student to identify. Then, several pages of the book focus on specific areas of the world, such as specific countries, regions, or continents. The remaining pages give information about the world, such as where mountain ranges are located or what the climate is like in various regions. Students will need reference materials such as almanacs, encyclopedias, and atlases to complete the maps in this book. Answer key included. ~ Rachel S.

    This workbook is divided into two sections: the first contains the activities for learning and practicing mapping skills and the second contains outline maps of the entire world. The activity section starts off pretty simply – what is a map, map types, directional indicators, compass rose, map symbols, globes, hemispheres, and coordinates – and moves on to more advanced concepts as students move through the book – reading maps, labeling maps, locating places on a map, and longitude and latitude. The activity pages are all consumable (and reproducible for family/classroom use), and include a lot of fill-in-the-blanks and map reading/drawing exercises. There are 59 pages of outline maps included in the book – working around the globe in the form of continents, continental regions, and countries. Some of these maps are labeled, or numbered, but most are blank – and many also include directions for completing activities to test geographical knowledge. All of the answers are included in the back of the workbook.

    If anyone can show us the history of the world, it is National Geographic. From the earliest times through 2005, the history of the world is described, outlined, and shown in full color. The book begins with a discussion of "prehistory" as an alternative to creation a section that spends about 30 pages guessing and assuming an alternative theory of early history. Actual recorded history is divided into 7 time periods: First Empires (ca. 7000 B.C.-200A.D), Ancient World (2500 B.C.-900 A.D.), Middle Ages (5th-15th Century), Early Modern Period (16th-18th Century), Modern Era (1789-1914), World Wars and Interwar Period (1914-1945), and the Contemporary World (1945-2005). Each of these sections is packed with information-rich text, photos, paintings, illustrations, maps, and short bios. There are two types of timelines in the book: a running timeline along the bottom of each page, which details the date of events and important people through history, and 4 fold-out timelines one of the Roman Empire, one for the Reformation, one chronicling the French Revolution, and one covering WWII. Point to note: there are photos and paintings that show nudity and dead bodies. 636 pgs, hc.

    Introduce your youngster to the continents of the world with this large 1.5 ft by 2.5 ft floor puzzle. It has 44 huge pieces, with many of them shaped like continents and regions. (For example, the entire continents of Australia and Europe are each one piece. Larger continents, such as Africa and North America, are divided into several large pieces.). The puzzle pieces vary in shape and size, but some of them are as large as 3" x 5". The illustrations of the continents themselves are very simple and kid-friendly, with each continent a different color and labeled with the continent's name. Larger individual countries are outlined, but not labeled. Cute cartoon illustrations of animals and landmarks appear on the continents. As an added bonus, the puzzle includes a fun geography game on CD-ROM, which challenges you to locate countries or capitals on a world map. ~ Lisa

    Have you found yourself wishing that the information found in Story of the World was available for an older student, or maybe for yourself? Well, now it is!

Accompanying the text are maps and timelines, even a few photos. This book just begs to be read.

    Having a bit of trouble with world geography? Need a book that you can use to practice naming places or geographic features? It sounds like this could be the workbook you need. There are eight sections in this book: the world, North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and Oceania, and the poles. Each section is pretty much structured the same, except for that of North America, which shows in more detail the states and provinces of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Page-by-page, here is what you will find in the South American section: first is an introduction page to the continent of South America, giving a few facts and lists. Next are the maps, one political map showing boundaries and names, one physical map with names, one blank outline map, another blank map showing only the borders of the countries within that continent, and one map showing physical features but no names. The last two maps in the section are fill-in-the-blank activity pages, showing half the continent with each country numbered and correspondingly numbered blank lines at the bottom of the page. The world map section talks about different projections, latitude and longitude and hemispheres. The book ends with some fun activities to help review. ~ Zach

    A wonderful way to incorporate geography into your world studies! Besides teaching basic map concepts like longitude and latitude, they help teach the facts and ideas of history; each map becoming a do-it-yourself visual aid. There are 35 map activities in all - each with a research and instruction sheet and a map to be completed, that span history from "Ancient Near East" to "Africa: The New Nations". Some maps are examples of historic concepts and terms. The map of Africa in 1914, for example, is a vivid portrayal of the concept of imperialism. Some activities are self-contained, some require reference to a text, others require some research in an atlas or encyclopedia. These sheets are not keyed to a particular text, but should work well with whatever text or course you choose - or use by itself as a survey course. A key is provided for each of the exercises, but there is no key for the map work. Sheets are reproducible (for within your home).

    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
