Fantastic and Timeless

I use this book for speech-language therapy. The drawings, maps, and graphs are suitable for the DBQ ("document-based questions") section of the NYS 8th grade Social Studies test, and the activities address a variety of language skills, such as critical thinking and inference, comparing and contrasting, vocabulary in context, etc. My 8th graders loved it - they said it helped them be more critical when they considered the documents on the test, and that they wished we had started doing the exercises earlier in the year. We actually did do similar items all year long, but because these activities are specifically geared to geography, they truly believed that I was helping them to learn social studies, and never even realized that their language goals were being addressed. My mother taught for 35 years and passed this book to me when she retired. My advice? Get this book - it'll seem like you never run out of activities.

Biggest Homeschool Geography Curriculum Help That I Have!

Section 1 Reading and Interpreting Maps Section 2 Basic Environments Section 3 The Fishing Industry Section 4 The Mining Industry Section 5 The Farming Industry Section 6 More Reading and Interpreting Maps Section 7 World's Continents, Oceans, and Important Water Passages Section 8 Water as a Universal Geography Significant Section 9 Air as a Universal Geography Significant Section 10 Natural Conditions and Phenomena That Modify the Earth Section 11 Statistical Information on World Population and Production Appendix Geography Enrichment Activities (Experiments & Crafts) I LOVE this book!! It has reduced the amount of time I need to spend looking for or creating worksheets to reinforce ideas. Though the publishing date is 1988, and the statistical data is outdated, with these wonderful worksheets, your child receives an abundance of opportunities to learn how to read and decipher the information. With the practical skills learned from doing these activities, the student will be able to go to an updated map or statistical chart and have a complete understanding of how to draw upon the information displayed. The book is spiral-bound for ease of making copies. The teacher's answers are on opposing pages. Another plus is that it covers multiple grade levels. 4th thru 8th. I HIGHLY recommend this as an integral resource for any homeschool geography curriculum!
