Skill Sharpeners Geography - Grade 6
Easily one of the most overlooked subjects in the homeschool curriculum is geography. But Skill Sharpeners Geography lets your child explore his world while learning key map skills and geography concepts with little fuss on your part. The cross-curricular activities integrate the most current geography standards, and each eye-catching book is divided into colorful collections of engaging, grade appropriate themes. Each theme includes short nonfiction reading selections, comprehension questions, vocabulary practice, and writing prompts. Optional hands-on activities will excite the kinesthetic child in your home.
Skill Sharpeners Geography takes your child beyond just the basics of geography and includes a smattering of histories and cultures within our world. The colorful illustrations and pages will grab your child’s attention, and the handy (removable) answer key in the back allows your student to easily check his own work.

My son has been using Skill Sharpeners Geography for several years and it is one of his favorite school books. The lessons are perfect for short attention spans and offer quality images for visual learners. We are breaking up the units in bite size bits and we're having great discussions with each small section. This definitely gets a child to think and it's helping my son ask really good questions. This book is on the small side for a curriculum however I think what they include in here is good quality.
We have enjoyed Skill Sharpeners Geography every year. My 6th grader can work on it with minimal assistance.
My favorite geography book to date! Colorful pictures and interactive lessons help my child learn!
