    Do you have what it takes to become president? In this realistic and fascinating game, two players or teams will battle it out to become the next president of the United States. With four players, one player can be running for President and the other can be Vice President on each team. One player or team will represent the Republicans, the other will be the Democrats. The board depicts a colorful outline map of the United States; each state is labeled with the number of electoral votes it is worth. To start the game, players/teams decide how many "weeks" they have to work with before the election, and that determines how many turns they take. Each team receives 150 vote chips and 3 dice. On each turn, a player/team can either go campaigning or fundraising, which will result in them gaining votes and therefore a majority in different states. Politics cards may help or hurt a team. States can swing often, so teams need to pay close attention to where they stand to get to the required 270 votes they need to win. A scorepad is included to track the number of votes each team currently controls. Exciting and competitive, this game will also help aid in the understanding of our country's election process. 2+ players. ~ Megan

    Kids will easily pick up their states, capitals, and U.S. geography as they yell, slap cards down, and use their quick-thinking skills to win state cards and put an impossibly scrambled-up United States back to rights. Each player receives 5 State Cards to create their own "State Line", along with a U.S. map. Then, as a Scramble card is uncovered, players race to fit one of their states to the Scramble card, with clues such as matching the color of the state to the Scramble card, or finding words or names within the state capital. Each of the state cards contains the name of the state, a state outline map, the capital city as well as the state nickname, and, of course, any of this information is fair game to be matched with a Scramble card. When a player is able to match one of their State cards with a Scramble card, they immediately slap it down on the Scramble card and yell out the name of the state. Or, a "Go the Distance" card is played, and the players have to determine which of them has a state that is the closest to that in question, and of course, if they have the lucky card, more slapping and yelling goes on. The game can be played with 2-4 players, and several variations are included to keep it challenging for players of all ages. Loud, noisy, and boisterous as it is, there's plenty of hidden motivations here for them to pick up vital information about each state - and remember it! - Jess

    What study of the states would be complete without a little coloring? Well, it's not really an essential, but it can reinforce the learning. Attractive blackline coloring pages are brimming with information about each of the 50 states, educating as they are colored. Which state is the Sunflower State? The Land of Opportunity? Which state's motto is "Ever Upward"? Informative captions provide each state's nickname, motto, flower, bird, tree, capital, principal rivers and mountains, notable attractions, and other special information.

    Accurate outline drawings of each state are prominent, with a small inset map of the United States showing its location (by shading). Some details, like mountains, rivers, and lakes, appear on the state. The capital's location is starred, but no printed names appear - so you can have your children do a little research and mapwork for extra benefit. This also makes the book usable as a reproducible map source. Surrounding the state are other blackline figures of the state bird, flower, related plant and animal life, and other significant features (New York, for example, includes the Statue of Liberty). Now your students can color their way to U.S. geographic literacy!

    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

    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.

    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

    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. (“tweet” is not a social media reference here!) sc, 64pgs. ~ Deanne

    Traverse your way through the United States of America in order of statehood with these spiral-bound state studies. Developed for two different age groups, both books help students discover how the United States was formed over the years by introducing the states in the order in which they became states. In the book for older students, lesson plans at the front of the book provide teachers with an outline and a small timeline of important events surrounding the statehood of that state. This section also holds five review lessons and quizzes to be assigned periodically. The body of the book contains the state-specific pages; each state is allotted three pages to provide students with a complete overview. The first of these pages holds interesting facts about cities, firsts, inventions, and other boasts of that state. At the bottom of this page, students can fill in other fascinating facts they discover about the states through their own research. The second page on each state is the data page; this covers the state's nickname, motto, symbols (bird, tree, flower and flag), historical sites, information on the economy, and a small map work section. Students decode the nickname and motto, read the passage on historical sites, cut and paste the correct state symbols from the back to the spaces provided, and use other appendices to answer the questions on the state's economy and complete the map work. The last state page in each series offers a brief, interesting reading passage on a notable event from that state. Appendices at the back provide the answers to the state data activities as well as the review lessons and quizzes.

    In the newer book for young learners, much of the same format is followed; students still receive four fun worksheets for each state, which cover state symbols, mapwork, special people, date of statehood, capital city, motto, and nickname. Suggested teaching schedules are still provided and this book is even more focused on building character, patriotism, Christian (pid, dsc) values, and a love for geography. Many younger students won't be able to read the text in the book, but will still benefit from having the information read to them. Activities include coloring, cutting, pasting, and learning about interesting people from each state. Full-color symbol pictures are included for both levels. Steph

     This Thinking Tree notebook is really DIY: in content and in how you choose to complete it. There are 6 pages to accomplish the same tasks for each of the 50 states. Begin with coloring in the state on a US outline map with the capital, population and state motto. Then, fill in boxes with facts – current events, what to see, the flag, famous quote, monuments and popular foods. Next, identify the locations of the capital and other large cities, important landmarks, national parks, major highways and rivers, and anything else you find interesting. The following page documents historical events, famous people, draw the state seal and design a postage stamp. Then read a state-oriented book and summarize a scene and/or watch a movie and draw a scene (you’ll need to do your own research; no suggestions provided). The final page is titled, “What do you want to do in ___?” Note that these outside resources are required: your choice of various library books and documentaries/movies, Google Earth, Wikipedia, a U.S. atlas, a U.S. map, colored pencils or gel pens, black pens and #2 pencils. Pages are reproducible within your home/family. 8.5x11”, black & white, sc. ~ Sara

    Based on the popular Great States! Board Game, this travel version is a great product in its own right! Included are 100 playing cards that measure 3â₝ x 4.5â₝, with ideas for four fun games to play. Each of the fifty states has two cards in the set; one asks about the capital and largest city in the state and the other asks what other states the state borders and another trivia question about famous landmarks or other state facts. With two trivia questions on each card, there are 200 questions in all (four for each state). Additional, random, interesting tidbits of information are included on the bottom of each card. The front side of each card displays an outline of the featured state with the surrounding states faded. The most popular way to play with a group is to shuffle the cards and then take turns reading questions from the cards. The first person to answer the question correctly wins the card and the player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner (for a break from the game, you can use them as flashcards, too). To help with the tricky questions, a full-color, fold-out map of the USA (measuring 11â₝ x 8.5â₝) is included. Learn important state facts with this card game and have fun while youââ‚™re doing it. For 2+ players. ~ Rachel

    This reproducible workbook and curriculum guide is from YWM, publishers of the Heroes of History series comes. Though a great companion to the series, it stands alone and doesn't require the use of the biographies. Each of the 50 states (with an extra for the District of Columbia) receives 2 reproducible worksheets in the book. The main worksheet (identical for every state) prompts students to research and find such information as date of statehood, state motto, current population, natural resources, number of representatives in Congress, and more. It also has students identify features like bodies of water, highest point, state capital, bordering states, and more. Students draw and label these features on the second worksheet for the state, which is a black and white outline map of the featured state. A very effective and interactive way to teach state facts to students. The book includes several appendices with valuable items like additional maps and exercises (for the 13 colonies, the Louisiana Purchase, etc.), additional assignments like oral reports and creating timelines, a list of resources for state information, and more.128 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    What do you call a unit study designed for the classroom? A ready-to-use interdisciplinary lesson and activity! While designed for the classroom, homeschool families will find the lessons and activities easy to implement at home with children of multiple ages or an excellent resource for a history focused co-op.

    Divided into three units, the 120 lessons immerse students in the history and culture of the United States. Beginning with the thirteen colonies, students will explore New England, the Middle and the Southern colonies before traveling into the Expanding Nation of the Midwest. This second unit covers the Midwest & Great Plains as well as the Mississippi Valley. The final unit traipses through the beckoning west as students explore the Southwest, Northwest and West. Units are formatted similarly and provide lessons in social studies, practical mathematics, language arts, music, art, consumer/family living and physical education. Extension activities are plentiful and include additional food experiences, research projects and reading suggestions.

    The lessons begin with a "For the Teacher" introduction, which provides parent/teachers with material lists and necessary teacher preparations, as well as a list of lesson activity worksheets. These reproducible worksheets vary and include map activities, word searches, fill in the blank outlines/sentences, matching definitions to vocabulary words, craft/art lessons, etc. Answers are provided as necessary. Art projects and other hands-on activities utilize common, easy-to-find items. Folk tales and literature suggestions abound and provide exposure to a wide range of options to enhance the language arts portion of the study. Some of the folk tales have been adapted and are included within the pages of this comprehensive resource, along with other historical information for the student.

    Let me share from Unit 2, Getting to Know the Southwest. Students begin with a map of the Southwest and are called upon to locate and label Arizona, New Mexico and Texas along with their capitals. They also locate the Gulf of Mexico and Mexico. The next lesson covers the people of the Southwest, introducing them by name along with a one-sentence summary; a word search puzzle follows and then students are asked to write a report on one of the famous people from this region. A reproducible outline is provided to guide their research. A "Life in Early Texas" lesson follows. In this lesson, students are given a word bank and asked to "fill in the blanks" to complete the reading on Texas in the 1800s and today. Following this concise historical view, an assignment is given to plan a trip to the Southwest. The teacher prep notes recommend students make use of travel agency pamphlets and books, but it may be easier for students to discover this information on the internet. Following the "trip" to the Southwest, a worksheet of various story problems is given with the focus of determining the costs for a family of four to travel to San Antonio. Vocabulary, folk-tales, literature, pastimes and games, music suggestions, craft projects, and authentic recipes and dining activities conclude the Southwest study. Helpful information in the back of the book includes a glossary of terms and summary of the fifty states including the date of union entry, capital and largest city.

    As with any interdisciplinary study, you will want to add a comprehensive math curriculum at grade level along with language arts topics like spelling and grammar. Correlated vocabulary words are included as are writing assignments, although you may wish to provide writing instruction for students who may be weak in composition. You will need to add science as it is not covered within the text. An excellent way to immerse children in the culture of the lower 48 states. As I perused the abundance of lessons, I was quickly impressed with the content and easily understood why it is a recommended resource for the Tapestry of Grace curriculum. 365 pgs. Spiral bound, reproducible for classroom use. ~Deanne

A U.S. map below, with the state in contrasting color, shows its location. Cards are color-coded according to region and have the year of the state's admission into the United States up top. On the back of the card are basic facts about the state: capital, date of statehood, flower, nickname, and bird. Main industries and attractions are itemized, followed by an interesting fact about the state, and two "quizzer" questions. A small piece of a map on the bottom shows the state shaded, with bordering states identified. There's a lot of information here for variation in your drill.

    Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in the beginning of this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ…the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to the history of the world. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and chronologically continues through the early church and moves into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history. ~ Steph

    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.
