Category Description

Learning new things is easier for young students when tied in to a common theme. That‘s why unit studies are so popular and successful. So what about Galloping the Globe? It‘s a unit study centered around geography. It encourages a detailed look at a selection of countries from the six populated continents as well as the North and South Poles and Christmas around the world. Using the countries being studied geographically as the basic platform, the authors have included ideas and references, projects and activities for integrating Bible, people/history, science, literature, vocabulary, internet sources, maps & flags, cooking, music/art, games, puzzles, and crafts into the curriculum. An aspect to this unit study which is similar to the Trail Guide to… series is the student notebook approach, where the child will actually produce a notebook full of art projects, reports, biographies, geographic dictionary pages, and much more. This is intended to be something they can show to other people, reinforcing and reviewing what they have learned as they explain various facts to friends and family. This is a fairly flexible course, with a full study of every topic listed taking between two and three years to complete. You can also pick and choose projects to simply make this a year long course. While geography is the main focus of this unit study, it does a good job of including the resources needed to study the other subjects, too. Answers are included and the consumable work pages are reproducible (and are also now found on the included CD-ROM in PDF format, which makes it even easier to use with multiple children). There are several recommended resources which are used multiple times throughout the course. If you are interested in purchasing these, please see below. Items without prices are those that we do not currently carry. Please note that the resource list has been recently revised to accommodate for items that were going out of print, and several new resources have been added. This is the newest version, which was revised in 2010 and includes a CD-ROM of printable forms, activity sheets, maps and flags. CD is Win/Mac compatible; requires Adobe Reader (a free download). 266 pgs, pb. ~ Zach
