    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.

    Learning how to outline can be a confusing challenge for any student, but this workbook provides 24 activities that build upon each other to break down the different steps involved. The book truly takes students step by step through the outlining process, starting small and then growing complex, giving them plenty of practice with each step. Students first learn about the aspects of an outline, such as the title, main topics, sub-topics, and details, and then they put each component to work. Students begin the workbook by learning about titles and making up some title names for different situations. Then they learn about adding topics, sub-topics, and other details. Worksheets include exercises like filling in outlines using word banks and other prompts, making up subtopics and details for an outline, choosing the main topic from a sentence, and much more. By the end of the workbook, students are creating their own outlines and writing a report from an outline. Reproducible, answers provided. ~ Rachel S.

    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.

    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

    There are definitely times when I pick up a new item and find myself saying "Wow – I sure wish this was around when I was being homeschooled!" I had a moment just like that while I was looking at this map program. I loved maps and geography. Actually, I still do. So when I had the opportunity to explore this program, I was very excited. The concept is very simple: these are pdf maps that can be manipulated to show just what you need – you can add or subtract names, borders, rivers, color, cities, and physical features at will. Keep in mind that throughout you can print off any screen you create, which makes this a fantastic resource for many ages and skill levels – and a really great value. There are four main map categories on the home screen: World, USA, Historical, and Thematic. When you click on world you are shown a world map with continents and oceans named. You can create a map at that level or click on one of the names to "zoom in" on a particular area. The next map, again, gives you the option to create a map or "zoom in" to get details on a couple of neighboring countries. There are only a couple of instances where the closest "zoom" will show an individual country (like New Zealand, Australia, Ireland/Northern Ireland), most show a continental region (like Southern Africa or Korean peninsula). The USA category can be explored by state or by region. In a similar manner to the countries, states are shown with their neighbors (though neighbors are only labeled with the state name and rivers – if selected). The category for historical maps is further divided by time period: Ancient (Creation – 33AD), Middle Ages (33 – 1456), Renaissance and Reformation (1457 – 1707), and Modern (1708 – Present). Thematic maps include American history, Explorers, Native Americans, World Wars, Biblical Maps, 20th Century Treaties, and Chinese Dynasties. You can access different maps through several means. The first is the "zoom in" process described above. The second is via the left-hand navigation that pops up as soon as you select any category. This lists all of the major regions or time periods in the category so you can pick from the list quickly. The third way to access maps is via one of the alphabetical indexes unique to each of the four main categories.

    The content doesn't end there. All of the maps used in Mystery of History volumes 1-3 and All American History volumes 1-2 are included in the program. When you select one of those volumes you can either scroll through all of the maps or use the left-hand navigation to find the required map. These maps are not customizable, but are presented as they would be used in the programs.

    Another useful feature is the Teacher's Guide. The resources of the TG will be helpful for learning about this program as well as teaching geography in general: quick start guide, tutorial video, user manual, downloadable MP3 workshops on "Loving Geography" and "Packing a Punch with Timelines and Maps", and several lessons adapted from the book "Hands-On Geography": 50 bright ideas for using outline maps, the 5 themes of geography, how to make a salt-dough map, history and geography, 16 easy mapping projects, and Joseph's Journey.

    As far as supplemental geography resources go, this one is fantastic in scope and depth. With over 350 different maps and the ability to customize as needed, you can incorporate maps and geography into any lesson with ease. Compatible with Windows through Windows7 and requires Adobe Reader 9 or higher. – Zach
