  1. This is such a fantastic resource!

    Melanie Zorr

    My 5th grader started this last week. We are taking it slow and really working to absorb all of the information. I have been looking for something like this for a while. I was looking for something that gave both a thorough understanding of WHERE things were, as well as WHAT makes up area such as the rivers, farmland, etc. I also wanted something that provided a more rounded view of the whole picture. I really like this notebooking bundle. By including the Discovering Plants and Animals notebook, my son and I are better able to see what animals and plants go where, which then helps as we read about them or hear about them in other parts of our curriculum. The World Geography and History can be used as a stand alone history or as a supplement to any other history curriculum. We are using this as a supplement to our history. We are currently on Lesson 3 of the World Geography and History and on Lesson 1 of the Discovering Plants and Animals. He is studying the country Portugal. In the downloads file there is a ‘text’ book or informational book and a student notebook. Each lesson corresponds to a portion in the student notebook. The Geography offers chances for finding both physical characteristics such as rivers and mountains as well political characteristics such as the country’s location in the world. I am so excited to continue this with him over the next year as well as starting it again with my younger students as they get to this point. I really like this notebooking bundle.
