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.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1.
