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 essential map skills and geography concepts with little fuss on your part. The cross-curricular activities integrate the most current geography standards. Each eye-catching book is divided into colorful collections of engaging, grade-appropriate themes. There are short nonfiction reading selections, comprehension questions, vocabulary practice, and writing prompts in each theme. Optional hands-on activities will excite the kinesthetic child in your home.
Skill Sharpeners Geography takes your child beyond just the basics of geography. It includes a smattering of histories and cultures within our world, while the colorful illustrations and pages will grab your child’s attention. The handy (removable) answer key in the back allows you to quickly check his work.
Instead of going by actual page count, split the work by activity pages. Each week complete any instructional pages needed as well as two activities. Extra activity pages can be skipped if that isn’t how your child learns best.
Activities incorporate geography concepts such as:
Places and regions
Habitats, environments, and physical systems
Human activities and cultures
Uses of geography
