All too often geography is overlooked, but the geography of a land greatly influences the lives of the people who live there. This little series does a wonderful job of showing the importance of the geography of four different ancient civilizations: Egypt, Greece, Rome, and the Incan Empire. Full of photos, illustrations, and maps, these books show how the geographical features of each area helped to shape the civilization. Discover how these civilizations came to be, some of the jobs they did, how research has helped us understand them, and much more.
Each book is 48 pages - about 40 pages of information and images, two pages of multiple-choice quiz questions, two pages of glossary, and two pages of additional resources for those who are really interested in the topic. These would be a nice introduction to ancient geography, or use them to enhance your curriculum. They are very well done and very interesting! ~ Donna
