    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!

    Make geography fun with this poster coloring book. Each page is a portion of a US map, detailed with cartoon-style facts and land marks. Simply color the pages, remove from the book, and assemble into a giant 44"x47" poster! Some of the printing runs over the perforation lines, so it might be best to remove the entire page from the book instead of ripping on the perforation to ensure the most accurate poster dimensions. 24 pages. – Laura

    Continuing the successful "detective" series from The Critical Thinking Company, the U.S. History Detective book can be used as a supplement to any history program, as a review course, or as a stand-alone text. The goal of this text is to encourage and develop critical thinking, analysis, and reading comprehension through the study of U.S. history. Book one covers the span from Colonial Times to the Reconstruction after the Civil War. Each lesson includes an informative text where each sentence is clearly numbered for easy reference. Colorful pictures, maps and timelines illustrate the text throughout. The question section in each lesson requires students to support their answers with specific references back to the text (hence the numbered sentences). This helps students get into the practice of providing supporting evidence for answers rather than relying simply on recall information. The various questions in each lesson will give students the opportunity to make inferences and draw conclusions based on their evaluation of the text, distinguish between fact and opinion, understand historical chronology, expand their vocabulary, link history with geography, and practice answering analytical essay questions. There are 65 lessons grouped into 9 sections. There are also more than 20 reviews throughout the book and answers to all lessons and reviews are included. This is a consumable book and permission is given to make copies for home or classroom use. – Zach

    Instead of using several different map skills books, this volume provides all you need for several years! It uses a building approach, starting with mapping simple floor plans in the first section. In it, students learn and map small areas, then learn about map symbols, directions and compass rose, map scales, and look at some different types of maps. Additional sections add skills and experience with both reading and construction of maps. A U.S. Geography section presents concepts of boundaries and rivers and work with political, physical, product and climate maps. Then, the United States is explored by region and, within region, state. A page is devoted to each state, ideal for use with state studies and memorization of states and capitals. Students complete their study of the Western Hemisphere with map work encompassing Canada, Mexico, Central and South America. Grid maps are given their own small section before the final Global Geography section where students encounter continents and oceans, hemispheres, latitude and longitude and time zones. An answer key and a final review wraps up this colorful volume. 416 pgs.

    People have been curious about the lay of the land for thousands of years. Children are naturally curious about the world around them. This book brings the world to your child through very readable narrative and activities they can try with a friend or teacher. The author is enthusiastic and encourages kids to use their imagination to really explore maps and charts of their city, state and beyond. There are many pictures and of course lots of maps in this black and white book. Several experiments for kids to do like putting the four-color theory to the test and measuring the slope of a hill are all very doable and practical. You learn how maps have been made through the centuries and where place names come from. I got so many ideas for unit studies from this book: geology, geography, climate, war history (the Mason-Dixon line for example,) civil engineering, railroads, western expansionism, sailing, or simply planning a vacation. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    The sister book to the National Geographic World Atlas for Young Explorers, this atlas uses the same colorful style of maps and comprehensive coverage that make these atlases the perfect easy reference for young students. All fifty states are given a two-page spread, with full-color physical maps showing major highways, national parks, cities, mountains, lakes, reservations, all the major industries around the state, deserts, rivers, borders, and more. There is also a brief description of the state, along with state facts and some interesting trivia. A two-page spread is also given to the territories administered by the US. The atlas begins with ten thematic spreads covering how to use the atlas, the physical United States, the natural environment, natural hazards, the political United States, population, immigration and minority populations, potential geographic areas where alternative energy can be used, and Washington D.C. A list of facts and figures, a glossary and an index round out the atlas. Full of nothing other than National Geographic standard photographs from each region, locator maps and color coding are used to make this atlas more accessible to all users.

    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

Additional maps are provided of the United States, Canada, and Mexico/Middle America. Graphs, charts, and "Did You Know?" fact boxes add visual interest and content.

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.

    Just so you know – I'm not particularly an art person. However, I do like to understand the interrelationships between historical events and culture. This book bridges an amazing gap – historical events and art history. Designed to be a brief survey of art (from 1830 to 1970) it functions as an art history, an art appreciation, and an art techniques (doing art) course. Not to mention the insights it provides into the people and places covered in the history course. This not-particularly-an-art-person is totally impressed!

    Each of the 16 lessons covers an art history period – romanticism through psychedelic art and tie dye – with impressionism, expressionism, modernism, and surrealism among others in between. Each lesson starts with an overview of the history and art of the time period. The succinct coverage is augmented by suggested web links/books/videos but there are also full-color reproductions (in various sizes) of period works included in the book. Sidebar information includes research questions and learning objectives rounding out the instruction. The lesson then moves into the doing art portion with clearly stated assignments, lists of needed supplies, student and author examples, and step-by-step illustrations. For instance, Lesson 5 is Art Nouveau and Symbolism (an ism I missed earlier) which is coordinated with the BF lessons on The Jungle and teaches us that Art Nouveau was an attempt to apply a new look to all of the applied arts while Symbolism was dramatically different – artists defining their art with dramatic emotions rather than story telling. Among the developments of the period; posters became a fine art medium for the first time. The activity for this lesson is designing a decorative initial in the Art Nouveau style.

    Help is available for the young artist (and/or his teacher). The KnoodleU.com website (book purchaser is entitled to access) contains tutorials, resources, tips, quizzes and even mid-term exams. Use of the DK book, Art, is suggested to augment the lessons and provide additional visuals (there's some nudity in the DK book and the author addresses this question helpfully and cautiously). A very helpful timeline that includes world events, art events, art projects and the BF book list is provided.

    Easily a stand-alone art class – or more by just adding the BF books as read alongs, this a perfect complement to the entire Beautiful Feet course and will provide the student with an excellently rounded-out history/humanities course. 65 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice
