Product Description:

Colorful, appealing, and kid-friendly, the Classroom Atlas from Rand McNally is the next step up from the Junior Classroom Atlas (#007961) with more maps, more detail and more information. The book begins with a section defining map terminology. Next are nine world maps, each with a different emphasis: physical, political, climates, population density, and time zones, to name a few. Following are physical, political, and thematic maps for each continent. Thematic maps might showcase climate, environments, population, economic activities, natural hazards, or transportation. Each continent map section begins with an introduction that provides a historical and geographical overview of the continent, a timeline, and photos of people, places, animals, or landmarks from the continent. Additional maps are provided of the United States, Canada, and Mexico/Middle America. Graphs, charts, and "Did You Know?" fact boxes add visual interest and content. Interesting Top 10 lists (i.e. Largest lakes, longest rivers, most populated countries) are printed in the front and back inside cover. Index included. This is the 13th edition, copyright 2015 and includes North and South Sudan. 208 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

Publisher Description:

Give your intermediate student the advantage of working with this best-selling atlas. Clearly organized by continent, Rand McNally's Classroom Atlas is packed with photographs, graphs, critical-thinking questions, brain teasers, and charts that illustrate map concepts. Includes essential how-to information on using an atlas.

Category Description for Memoria Press Classical Curriculum:

Memoria Press now offers complete Curriculum Manuals and grade-level curriculum packages for PK-10 using the classical methodology. Recitation is used in every level for memorization of basic facts, systematic phonics and good books are used for reading education, copywork is used for teaching Bible truths, and music and art are included for enrichment in the early (K-3) levels. Each Curriculum Manual contains complete lesson plans for a one-year course of study.

The Curriculum Manuals are well-formatted and easy to use. In the front of each book you will find a checklist of the materials needed at that level, an explanation of this curriculum, instructions for lesson implementation, a recommended schedule and blank schedule for your own planning purposes, and 33 weeks of detailed lesson plans. Lessons include assignments from the books used at each grade level, as well as activity suggestions. The appendices include a variety of material for that grade level, and may include: prayers, letter activities, recitation, memory verses, read-aloud book list, poetry list and selections, and a paintings/music list for kindergarten and first grade. These pages are reproducible for family or classroom use.

Although most of the guides have been available for several years, the curriculum was restructured in 2015, with many of the programs originally included in 3rd grade now with a slower pacing to span 3rd and 4th grade. Guides for grades 3 and up have been modified to reflect this change, while the lower-level guides have only had minor changes. If you are already midway into the program with the original guides, you can still continue in that track with the older guides, now titled Acclerated Classical Core Curriculum Manual. You can find these along with the complete list of curriculum resources used with them on our website.

We have complete grade-level resource packages, consumable packages for “refill,” new user packages for levels that reuse resources from a previous level, read-aloud packages for each level and science and enrichment packages for the early levels. Curriculum resources are also listed individually (see website for specific contents of consumables and read-aloud packages). Please note that several of the programs include First Form Latin and Classical Composition, which should be completed in order, regardless of what is in the grade level package.If you have a student entering the program after fourth grade, you will need to start them in Classical Composition: Fable Stage and/or First Form Latin instead of what might be in the package.

This series is for the parent who wants a good classical curriculum which is outlined and ready to use. Simply open the book and follow the instructions. You will be well on your way to a quality education for your young ones. ~ Donna

Category Description for Memoria Press Eighth Grade Curriculum:

Latin and composition are continued with Classical Composition V and Fourth Form Latin (please note that these programs must be completed in order, so if you are starting here, you will need to start with Classical Comp I and First Form Latin before progressing).Literature includes As You Like It, Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Treasure Island, and Wind in the Willows. Poetry is also incorporated. Book of the Ancient Greeks, Iliad and Odyssey make up Classical Studies, and Book of the Ancient World is used for Christian studies. Math is Algebra I from Prentice-Hall, and Memoria Press has published accompanying quizzes and tests. Science is Exploring Planet Earth. Geography III has also been included at this level. A complete package and consumables only package are both available for this grade level.

Accelerated curriculum guides are available from Memoria Press for families who wish to move at a faster pace than the Classical Core Curriculum pace.If you begin at the Accelerated Pace and find it too difficult, it is possible to transition to the Classical Core Curriculum.

Does this book also talk about the oceans and facts about the oceans as well as the continents and maps?
Megan on Jan 21, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I haven't seen any information about bodies of water except for location labeling on the maps. All the facts listed in the book are about the land. Such as population, climate, mountain heights, and history timelines for some of the countries.
what size is this?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is about the size of a standard piece of paper.
