We love Geography Matters products. The history art is more difficult and perhaps would benefit from more background knowledge of lines, symmetry, color, etc. My child struggled at first, but built confidence over the course of several projects.

I used this with 1st and 4th grade girls studying world geography together for the '14-'15 school year. They loved the crafty projects, like making a rainstick, but most of the drawing/painting type projects felt too hard for them. Plenty regions didn't offer anything they could really do on their own, and I either found a project elsewhere or we just didn't do one. The first grader started wrinkling her nose at the book mid-year, but the 4th grader still enjoyed it.

I think older kids who enjoy art and projects would get more out of this. I'll pull the drawings and handiwork out for my 7th and 10th graders doing world geography this coming school year.
