What’s your favorite school subject? Geography? Well, um, er...no. That attitude could change with this product, brainchild of Maggie Hogan (co-author of Hands-on Geography) and Cindy Wiggers (of Geography Matters). This curriculum is designed to incorporate geography with other school subjects so that it will be relevant and memorable, not isolated and disjointed. First, the authors impart enthusiasm for the subject matter, give the teacher a refresher course, and then provide workable, interesting, even (dare I say it) fun ways to intertwine geography with other subjects. Included are teaching tips, geography basics, lesson plans, reproducible activity pages and outline maps, timeline with 300+ figures, all in a non-consumable format. You will need to find a copy of Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates, a basic resource used in the program. As protection for the overachieving teacher, a scope and sequence limits the amount of activities to be used in any one year. To save you from mounds of copying, a CD-ROM has been included with over 200 reproducibles from the book, including worksheets, forms, timeline figures and more. CD-ROM is Mac and PC compatible; requires Adobe Reader 5.0 or above (which is included on CD-ROM). This looks to be a well-designed and helpful product.
