Category Description for The Spectrum Series:

If you're looking for a basic practice workbook, consider this series of educationally solid, quality books. From McGraw-Hill, these books have their roots in basal lines like SRA and Merrill (and other lines combined into the SRA group over the years). Because customers have asked for good, basic, interesting practice books, I've looked at many (including all the different ones those customers have mentioned). These are unquestionably the best - the best value, the most educational in content, the most interesting (even without little characters and graphic "gimmicks"); all in all the most complete, comprehensive and appealing of the lot. These are more like complete worktexts than mere practice books, but at a low cost. Material is secular but wholesome (some of it looks like it could have been culled from earlier textbook lines, before they "modernized") and traditional in format, but varied and involving. All series are written to be primarily self-instructional. The pages are all perforated and answers are included. Below are the


Category Description for Spectrum Geography:

This is one of the best lines from Spectrum. Each worktext is in full color and content varies by grade level. There are fifteen three part lessons in each book. Each begins with textual information, accompanied by photos, diagrams and maps. The second part of the lesson concentrates on map skills correlated to the theme of the reading. Various types of maps and lessons are included here, as well as graphs and charts. The last part of the lesson consists of questions to answer, charts to complete, and short research and writing projects. A mini-almanac is included in the back of each grade level, which is referenced in activity sections, so students gain the experience of looking things up in an almanac. Each book also contains a short glossary of geographical terms and a complete answer key. Books are a little over 120 pgs. The content of this 2014 edition remains the same as that of the blue-covered 2006 edition, with just a new cover noting that it correlates to current state standards the difference between editions. ~ Zach

Inexpensive and adequate
These books are a budget friendly option if you are willing to put in some extra work. They cover a broad range of subjects but only spend a brief time on each one. I add further research projects, videos, etc. to enhance and expand upon the subject matter but I think that, even on its own, this book is a very good introduction to World Geography.
