My 4th grader enjoys this book and I love that she can do most of it on her own. You can build off the lessons, if you use your imagination and It can also be used as a supplement to other geography
As a first time user of Skill Sharpeners Geography we are impressed! The lessons are just the right length to maintain interest. Also the little bit of history and social studies that is incorporated is great! It's not a dry "this is a map key, this is a compass rose, etc." It is engaging and encourages asking questions about Geography.
These books are great! Love the information these books provide!
Perfect for getting daily geography in!
Good short lessons. Not extremely in depth, some other teaching to answer questions in text are necessary. For example it asked a latitude and longitude question but did not teach how to find the point.
