Without a doubt, the Trail Guide curriculum, which can be used individually, with your kids, or in a co-op group, is of high quality and well worth the money. When you have completed this program, your children (and you) will have an awesome wealth of geography knowledge and will be ready to enjoy some world traveling. We have completed all three of the Trail Guides (World Geography, US Geography, and Bible Geography) and loved them all. Each guide has interesting questions, fabulous mapping activities, a superb literature project, intriguing points of interest, and art projects, which are geared to different ages and learning styles. With the World Geography, we studied one continent per month, with a little more time for Africa, as outlined in the guide and I created a set schedule for each continent to correlate with the guide. Each week, the students completed the questions from the guide and read books on the continents and countries. In the 1st week of each continent, we completed the mapping activities and a spreadsheet which I created. The kids researched basic facts to complete the spreadsheet such as capitals, currency, language, religion, population, etc. The 2nd week of each continent, we studied the people and places of interest. The 3rd week, we drew each country's flag of that continent and tasted foods from those countries. The 4th week, we completed extra assignments or special projects as directed in the Trail Guide. During the month's study of the continent, each student would choose a different topic, from the guide's suggestions, to research and write a paper which was then presented to the family/group. At the end of the continent study, we enjoyed a game of geography jeopardy which I created from the questions, reviews in the guide, books we read, and papers which were presented. After completing the guide, the students had an awesome notebook full of beautiful maps, details of each continent, and fabulous flags, which they could proudly share with the grandparents. When friends or family have geography questions, my kids know the answers now! For resources with the guide, we used the Uncle Josh Outline Book, online websites such as the CIA World Facts website, maps, Flags of the World website, books from the library, and of course, food from the produce and specialty sections of local grocery stores. Wow, we all learned a tremendous amount and had so much fun completing this study together! Unexpectedly, God sent our family to live overseas and we were very prepared for our world travels after studying geography using the Trail Guide to World Geography! I highly recommend the Trail Guide curriculum and I highly recommend traveling, both of which will increase your knowledge and understanding of this incredible world which God has created!

What a great resource for teaching geography across the curriculum to students of all ages! We kicked off our year with the "chocolate chip geological dig" in chapter 5 and my children were hooked. We're using The Ultimate Guide along with Trail Guide to World Geography and Geography Through Art for a very fun, complete geography program that appeals to my children from 1st through 5th grade. What I like most about this book is that the wealth of information and ideas in this book is useful for teaching up through the high school level which makes it very economical. There are also several pages of resources for use in history and science as well as geography. These include the timeline figures, "Who Am I" game cards, landform cards, weather report pages, and maps. Don't miss out on this valuable resource. No homeschool should be without it!
