A good geography curriculum is more than isolated facts, concepts, and generalizations, which are not only difficult to remember but often useless. However, a great geography curriculum not only selects pertinent topics that focus on the earth as it is modified by human action but also highlights the Creator God that fashioned it all.
A Child's Geography: Explore the Holy Land does all that in an engaging manner that children will find appealing. Each chapter begins with a captivating adventure text, followed by a number of enjoyable activities. If you divide the chapter into two sessions, not only will the lesson not become tiresome but it will also provide you with a natural time to review key points.
A Child's Geography: Explore the Holy Land includes captivating conversational text that children of ages will find appealing. It also encourages narration, keeping a notebook, map activities, prayer for each country, and a special spotlight on the art, music, and food of each country. This book focuses on the countries of Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey, and does an excellent job of keeping God as the center of the study.
With 16 chapters, nearly 200 pages of text, and a bonus CD-ROM, you will add depth to your family's Bible reading by studying the countries where most of the events of the Bible took place.
