    This atlas from Rand McNally bridges the gap between simpler atlases geared to younger students and adult reference-only atlases. Like its adult cousins, this atlas is packed full of colorful maps and handy reference material; however, it also includes some student-friendly features such as charts/graphs, and narrative text. The atlas begins with an overview of map terminology. Next are sections on the earth/solar system, plate tectonics, climate, and other topics pertaining to physical geography. A twelve-page countries and flags of the world section presents basic information about 199 countries. Seven world maps are included: political, physical, climate, economic, population density, environments, and time zones. Detailed political and physical maps are provided for each of the seven continents and the U.S., plus thematic maps and select regional/country maps. Some examples of the continent thematic maps include: climate, population, environments/land use, or special topics specific to the continent (i.e. destruction of the rain forest in South America). Glossary and index included. 176 pgs, pb. Revisd in 2017. ~ Lisa

    Students will get plenty of geography practice with this book! The first chapter contains activities for general map skills and a world overview, while subsequent chapters cover each continent in detail. Each page contains two numbered, perforated, and reproducible activities. 144 activities are included, covering topics like states of the U.S., African languages, and countries in Asia. Activities vary, with fill-in-the-blank, unscrambling, crosswords, creating lists, and more. The activities can be used in a variety of ways: homework assignments, to review a concept being studied, or simply as extra practice. The back of the book contains twelve labeled reproducible maps. 92 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    This book literally blazes a trail through geography - all you have to do is follow it! Cindy Wiggers has done a terrific job of combining questions, mapping, and other activities into a fun, easy-to-teach approach to geography. Intended as a thirty-six week program, the first twenty-seven of these include a variety of activities. The first weeks encompass the world as a whole; then you focus on different regions continent by continent. Within each week there are several different methods of learning. One of these, Geography Trails, provides questions four days a week that will improve the student's ability to use maps to locate countries, capitals, bodies of water, and landforms, teach them valuable geography terms and learn many geography facts. Different questions are given for grades 2-4, 5-7, and 8-10, so that you can use this book for children at different levels at the same time. The questions are based on the content of three recommended atlases (one for each age group) which are listed in the key resources below. Additional geography activities for every week are in the form of "Points of Interest," where you can take time to learn more extensively. Activities to choose from include mapping, researching, suggestions for art projects, and weekly projects to compile into your very own geography notebook. Then it's Geography through Literature for the last nine weeks as you read through Around the World in 80 Days. Questions for each chapter are provided, as are ideas for additional research and spelling and vocabulary words. Happy trails!

    Please note that that this course provides a framework for studying world geography, and relies on additional resources for reference, maps, and activities. Required resources include: Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne (if you are planning on completing the literature portion of the study) and one or more of the recommended atlases (depending on the age of the student(s). Three other "key" recommended resources you will rely heavily on for many of the activities include the Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide, Uncle Josh's Map Book (in book form, or CD-ROM), and Visual Manna's Teaching Geography Through Art (for the art in geography lessons). Although you could make the study work without these, they are often referred to in the lessons, and the program would work much more easily with them. These and other recommended resources are listed below. An almanac is also recommended, in case you don't have one on hand, we recommend the World Alamanac & Book of Facts. A Geographical Terms chart is also recommended; we are unable to offer this specific one, but it is available from Geography Matters. ~ Stephanie

    Test and expand your knowledge of the world with this challenge card set. The small box contains 150 double-sided question cards. One side contains a multiple choice question with three possible answers, and the back reveals the answer and a list of related facts pertaining to the part of the world addressed in the question. For example, one card's question asks the player to determine which country in Southeast Asia has the least number of people per square mile than any other country in the world. The back of the card lists the answer, Mongolia, along with facts about the country: its capital, population, land area, life expectancy and literacy rate. There are no set rules for playing WordTeasers, although the set does include some game suggestions, as does the WordTeasers website. Of course, you can always use the cards to quiz yourself or others about this fascinating world we live in. ~ Lisa
