Trail Guide to US Geography

Most of my regular readers know me well enough to know I am not much into a traditional unit study unless it has all the information (more like a theme study) at hand and I do not have to do much research. However, I think this 133-page unit study of the 50 states I received as an e-book by Geography Matters called Trail Guide to US Georaphy may actually have somewhat converted me. Each unit is flexible and progressive and can be adapted to all age groups from 1st grade all the way through high school.

Each of the daily lessons include a 5-minute daily drill, your child will make their own geography notebook, which I love, different projects to choose from and some mapping skills, Student will be studying all 50 states, about 2 states each week. However if you want to slow it down and take more time you certainly can. There is a literature unit on the Lewis and Clark Expedition at the end of their adventure through the USA.

I think for next fall when we start in on the USA, I have found the curriculum that I will use for geography. The kids will learn mapping skills by using outline maps, atlases and learn the capitols, climate and different locations etc. This really is a great little unit study. The whole point to this book is to make the child do the research not the parent. I love that. That is always been my reason for not choosing unit studies. They are usually so time intensive on research for a parent. Not in this one. If you use the few books they suggest, you can find all the answers in just a few minutes. If you have older children, then obviously the child is to do a more intensive research.

Truly I love Trail Guide to US Geography. I highly recommend this e-book for your USA geography study this year. You can find it for $15.00 and it is downloadable right now.
