What Cindy Wiggers has done for the geography of the world and U.S. through her other Trail Guides, she brings to this unique and exciting study of the lands of the Bible and invites you to come and explore the geography, culture, and history of the land and people. Using the three-part approach from the other Trail Guides, this one incorporates "Geography Trails," mapping activities and projects, as well as a literature unit based on the Bronze Bow. "Geography Trails" are daily drill questions included at different ability levels that give the students an opportunity to use their Bibles and atlases to identify landmarks and places in the Bible and to get a closer look at the and "feel" for the lands of the Bible, as well as providing practice in finding their way around their Bibles and atlases. For each week of "Geography Trails", there is an equivalent "Points of Interest" page, where students will fill in landmarks, cities, and label reproducible blank outline maps, as well as multiple suggested activities for each region which may include making a 3-D map, creating crossword puzzles, research specific topics, make models, and much, much more. Students will also maintain a geography notebook, where they will add any maps they create, reports, drawings, activities, Bible timelines, and anything else theyve worked on during the study. The remaining portion of the study consists of the Bronze Bow study. For every four chapters read in the book, there is an accompanying page of discussion questions, mapping activities to locate and label locations described in the book, questions and activities based on the characters in the book, vocabulary, compiling lists, and researching topics relevant to the book. The appendix contains reproducible forms, templates and maps including a grid, timeline page, lined report pages, several outline maps of the region, as well as recipes, a list of animals mentioned in the Bible with verse references, and answers to the daily quiz questions. For a really in-depth, complete and well-rounded study of the Bible lands, you cant beat this for map practice, activity suggestions, and enjoyment. Cindy Wiggers and Dianna Wiebe have put together another winner in the Trail Guide series. Required resources for this study include a Bible, an age-appropriate Bible atlas (two recommended ones are listed below), a set of Bible Activity Maps and The Bronze Bow. Recommended (but not required) resources have also been listed. Items with no prices are items that are unavailable or ones that we are not able to carry. - Jess

Providing an introduction to a variety of essential research tools, this guide gently walks students through the dictionary, encyclopedia, atlas, concordance and the telephone book. Each lesson offers great flexibility for the homeschooling family, as the lessons are not written in daily format. Each section begins with background information on the studied reference book and includes instructions on how to use it. The following student pages provide a variety of activities specific to the reference studied. Here is an example of one portion of the Encyclopedia lesson: The student reads the instruction on using an encyclopedia. They are asked to look up Samuel Adams and read about his life and answer the following questions: What year was he born? Who was his famous cousin? What college did he graduate from in 1740? Internet research tools are discussed, although the author emphasizes the importance of using research books. Strongs Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible is recommended and Noah Websters 1828 dictionary is suggested (other dictionaries will work). Pb. 26 pgs. Non-reproducible. ~ Deanne

I believe it was Albert Einstein who said that he never tried to remember anything that he could look up. Einstein would have appreciated Information, Please!, a program designed to teach research skills to children. Start with Getting Started, which gives us some basic information about the library and when and how to use the reference materials included there. Follow-up questions and activities are provided for each reference source studied. From there, three books help children become increasingly proficient at finding what they need, and not just in the encyclopedia and dictionary. Please note that Getting Started is the only level with instruction on how to use reference materials; the three following levels are completely made up of research questions. Suggested sources include a Bible concordance, globe, world map, telephone directory, newspaper, thesaurus, world almanac, atlas, Timetables of History, and Facts Plus mini encyclopedia. About a dozen alternate sources are also mentioned. Each book contains 40 pages, with 10 questions per page that must be looked up somewhere. It is suggested that no more than two questions per page be looked up in any one source, so that the student gets more exposure to a variety of sources. Plan to make a regular trip to the library unless you have an extensive reference library in your home. An answer key is included , so YOU dont have to follow your child around the library! As your child heads down the information superhighway, research skills will be increasingly important. Start now!
