Skill Sharpeners Geography
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.

From the Publisher:
The reading selections and activities take students beyond basic geographic understandings and into unique ecosystems, biomes, places and regions, histories, cultures, and social movements within our world. Students make personal connections to their learning by completing expository and creative writing activities as well as hands-on geography projects.

    Nice supplement for Geography concepts

    I am a huge fan of geography and my children have become huge fans as well. However, I've mostly focused on them learning world countries, capitals, landmarks, etc. I loved how this beautiful book added concepts that I wasn't teaching myself in a very friendly format. My son never complained about this book!

    Great Curriculum

    Very interesting information. I love that it's now all in color instead of just black and white like it used to be.
