Memoria Press Geography I

Hey Neighbors!

Are you beginning to look for curriculum for next school year?  You might be interested in the Geography I from Memoria Press.  I recently received this product for review purposes.  This curriculum is designed for grades 4 to 8.  The Geography I covers the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.

Included in this curriculum for $48:
Geography I Text 
Geography I Workbook \
Geography I Teacher Guide 
United States Review Student
 United States Review Key, Quizzes, and Tests 

It is recommended that your child has already done the United States.  In this book they will learn states and their capitals.  It is expected that your child know how to label a map of the US with states and their capitals.  Each page covers a state, so depending on your child's ability, you should be able to get through this one quickly, especially if you have previously studied the United States.

When you move on to the actual Geography I your child will begin to expand their knowledge of maps and locations of other countries.  I must confess, I am lacking in this area.  Yes, I graduated and did quite well in school, A B Honor Roll, but it has been a long time since I have studied the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe.

Each country is covered in a two page spread.  The first being historical information, called History's Headlines and then a Tour of Today.  There is also a section labeled Fast Facts, that gives important facts, like the capital, major cities, population, religions, the climate, etc.  The second page of course is the map, with borders, capital, and neighboring countries.  Very simple, yet very informative.

I personally like this system, because it is not information overload, and yet is enough information that your child will have an understanding of the geography.  It is perfect to use, and then should you wish to cover an area more, you can add extra library books, or other activities.

The workbook follows the simple layout of the geography book.  They are required to name the country, it's ancient name, it's capital, some of the fun facts, and of course label the map.

It is quite easy to cover 2-3 a week, as my daughter is at the 7th to 8th grade level.  For younger students you might only do one a week.  It will all depend on your schedule and of course your child's understanding.
