I flipped through this in the beginning of the year and didn't think that it would be enjoyed, however, it was one thing that my 2nd grader absolutely loved. I gave it 4 stars because I felt like it was hard to schedule this throughout the entire school year. She wanted to do 1 lessons per sitting, and I think there were only 16 lessons/chapters, which means we finished super early. She continued to request more geography, so I'm excited to do Grade 3 next year, and supplement with another geography curriculum. I thought the pages and lessons in this book were wonderful and informative.
We loved this geography book! It was a good starting point for a lot of great conversations with my kids! There are short lessons...just enough for the kids not to get board but really learn a lot. The pictures and layout are great and engaging. We were sad when we were done with it!
The kids love this. And both my BF and I find lots of points to turn into talking points to explain things more in depth for them. I only wish I knew what I had done with my globe! I think it would pair well with this book.
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! This is a quick and easy addition to our social studies class and typically reinforces things we are learning or brings up new things for us to further study!
We love this book. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that we will finish with it well before the end of the school year. I really wish it had more pages or multiple books in a set.
