My son just loves geography now! This book makes everything very relative to real life and is very hands on. My family loves hands on. My son knows his cardinal directions. So proud!
We got the K level before and really enjoyed it. So we decided to get the Grade 1 and am very happy we did. These are done very well and my son enjoys the crafts for each lesson.
We have used several different brands of these types of workbooks and Skill Sharpeners are our favorite! My girls look forward to geography and doing these workbooks. Each lesson is just a few pages with a small activity at the end of each. I can guide them through it then they are able to complete the pages on their own. We have continued to get this workbook throughout the past 3 grades!
I found the book a little repetitive to what we learned in kindergarten but with a step up. I think ill have to expand the study a little more as i find it a bit easy for my 6 year old but it will serve as a great review before book 2.
My child loves geography so we have been working through this series of books quickly. They pages are colorful and easy to follow. The activities keep kids engaged. We will continue with this series for next year as well.
