Trail Guide to US GeographyHot
Make your way across the great United States with this Trail Guide to US Geography. Three different trails allow for three years worth of use, or for three different students to simultaneously use the same curriculum. Geography Trail features include five minute drills that use an atlas, almanac or critical thinking and analysis skills on the part of the student; "Points of Interest" contains a variety of mapping, research or other projects for students to choose from, and Geography Through Literature follows the Louis and Clark Expedition. Systematically moving through the US, there's something here for everyone, whether you're looking for a few warm up drills or a thorough, in-depth geography course. Reproducibles and answers included. 126 pages, softcover.
we have this we started and had so much going on with the past year we had to stop. we have the eat your way through the USA and the geography through art . I am going to try to plan on working it in our curriculum again this year along with the around the world geography.
My daughter used this in ninth grade. We were aiming for a .25 credit worth of US geography, and this fit the bill perfectly. She ran it independently and enjoyed it. Since we weren't doing this as a full course she skipped the daily questions, did all the mapping, and did a couple/few of the rabbit trail suggestions.
I'll be using the mapping and rabbit trails again with my fifth grader studying American history this year.
