    Colorful, appealing, and kid-friendly, the Classroom Atlas from Rand McNally is the next step up from the Junior Classroom Atlas (#007961) with more maps, more detail and more information. The book begins with a section defining map terminology. Next are nine world maps, each with a different emphasis: physical, political, climates, population density, and time zones, to name a few. Following are physical, political, and thematic maps for each continent. Thematic maps might showcase climate, environments, population, economic activities, natural hazards, or transportation. Each continent map section begins with an introduction that provides a historical and geographical overview of the continent, a timeline, and photos of people, places, animals, or landmarks from the continent. 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. Interesting Top 10 lists (i.e. Largest lakes, longest rivers, most populated countries) are printed in the front and back inside cover. Index included. This is the 13th edition, copyright 2015 and includes North and South Sudan. 208 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    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.

    Any description of this atlas has to include a suggestion to view the sample pages online. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words! Looking at this atlas is a visual (and informational) treat. Each state (and Washington D.C.) covers a two-page spread. It has the appearance of looking like a desk blotter; with a journal open showing a map and a brief overview of the state. Surrounding the map are notes, dates, facts, illustrations and trivia "paper clipped" or "taped" in place. Readers are introduced to all of the basics: state birds, flowers, seals, flags, statistics, quarters, events, people, and much more. The maps are topographical with major cities and Interstate highways marked. Thematic maps show farm resources, expansion, population, climate and regions; and the paperback atlas ends with a state almanac and a list of geography terms defined. – Zach

    If your kids have outgrown our simpler U.S. map puzzles with state-shaped pieces and cartoon landmarks, hand them a more advanced puzzle to work on. This 24" x 36", 500 piece jigsaw puzzle features a colorful political map of the U.S. that resembles an atlas page in its look, feel, and level of detail. Major interstates, highways, cities, bodies of water, airports, and other landmarks are clearly labeled. A key located at the bottom of the map provides information on interpreting scale, city populations, state capitals, types of roads, and more. Each puzzle piece measures approximately 2 ¼" x 1 ¼", with the pieces fitting together in a challenging jigsaw manner (no separation by state). This is the most detailed U.S. map puzzle we carry--adults will enjoy putting this one together, too. ~ Lisa

     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

    This is another quality, standards-based curriculum that is now available to homeschool families. If you want to be sure that your child is covering material found on standardized testing or your goal is to keep pace with grade-level classrooms or put your child back into the classroom without gaps, Scott Foresman covers the necessary information at each grade level.

    Content-wise, Grades 5 and 6 are very similar. The United States (Gr. 5) and Building a Nation (Gr.  6) are identical through Unit 7 (the Civil War and the end of slavery). The grade 6 text – Building a Nation – has an additional two units (Expansion and Change; The United States and the World) which take the historical narrative up to the end of the 19th century. We assume the reason for this duplication is that most states require state history in either 5th or 6th grades. You would then choose to use either the 5th grade or the 6th grade course to cover the first part of American history.

    Homeschool bundle includes the necessary student and teacher information at each level. Grade 5 & 6 bundles include 2 volumes of the teacher edition with pouch cards and pouch, hardcover student text, and workbook.

    The Teacher Edition includes small-format student text pages with teaching notes in the margins, reproducibles, reference lists, skills handbook for citizenship, research, and geography. Strategies for teaching vocabulary, planning guide, answer keys for the workbook, and other resources are included in the overview of the curriculum and for each unit. You will see some resources mentioned that aren’t included in this bundle, but are not necessary for the completion of the course – transparencies, quick studies, posters, etc. Suggestions for family and calendar activities, writing rubrics, reading suggestions, and graphic organizers are also found in the teacher edition. Online resources can be found at the publisher’s website, sfsocialstudies.com – library, current events, atlas, activities, and biographies, along with live links to learning partners for this curriculum – Smithsonian, Colonial Williamsburg, and others.

      Student Texts provide grade-appropriate reading opportunity along with a plethora of visuals – diagrams, timelines, photos, illustrations, and maps – ideal for those who need a little more than just the reading. Units are divided into chapters and further divided into lessons. Each lesson includes a preview, vocabulary, review, and “think and apply” questions. A review section provides summary at the end of each chapter, and can be used as an assessment opportunity (answers provided in the teacher edition).

      The Workbook included in each set includes reinforcement activities - vocabulary practice, lesson reviews, reading skills practice, skills worksheets, and projects. Multiple choice, short answer, fill-in-the-blank, reading graphs and maps are all used to enhance and strengthen the students understanding of textual content.

    First published in 1923, this atlas has gone on to become the number-one college reference atlas used in the United States. Probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date atlas of world geography that we sell, this one will meet all your needs from a basic reference tool for finding countries, capitals, cities, mountains, rivers, and oceans, to a detailed study on, quite literally, hundreds of different aspects of worldwide geography. The atlas is divided into three sections: World Maps, Regional Maps, and Tables and Indexes. The World Maps section is a collection of dozens and dozens of mostly thematic maps, but it also includes a political world map, a physical world map, and three ocean floor maps. The Regional Maps section then looks at each of the continents in turn, as well as the major oceans and polar regions. North America is more closely studied than the others, with 76 pages of thematic maps of the US providing an in-depth look at the geographic aspects of employment, transportation, climate, and other topics; over 140 pages of reference maps are devoted to the other continents, oceans, and polar regions. The final section contains the tables of statistics, glossary of foreign geographical terms, abbreviations and pronunciations of geographic names, 30,000 longitude and latitude locations, and a subject index that no atlas would be without. Complete, colorful, and up-to-date, this atlas is a very easy-to-use resource that will help every reader or student of geography get to know our world. 426 pgs, pb. ~ Zach
