What Cindy Wiggers has done for the geography of the world and U.S. through her other Trail Guides, she brings to this unique and exciting study of the lands of the Bible and invites you to come and explore the geography, culture, and history of the land and people. Using the three-part approach from the other Trail Guides, this one incorporates "Geography Trails," mapping activities and projects, as well as a literature unit based on the Bronze Bow. "Geography Trails" are daily drill questions included at different ability levels that give the students an opportunity to use their Bibles and atlases to identify landmarks and places in the Bible and to get a closer look at the and "feel" for the lands of the Bible, as well as providing practice in finding their way around their Bibles and atlases. For each week of "Geography Trails", there is an equivalent "Points of Interest" page, where students will fill in landmarks, cities, and label reproducible blank outline maps, as well as multiple suggested activities for each region which may include making a 3-D map, creating crossword puzzles, research specific topics, make models, and much, much more. Students will also maintain a geography notebook, where they will add any maps they create, reports, drawings, activities, Bible timelines, and anything else they've worked on during the study. The remaining portion of the study consists of the Bronze Bow study. For every four chapters read in the book, there is an accompanying page of discussion questions, mapping activities to locate and label locations described in the book, questions and activities based on the characters in the book, vocabulary, compiling lists, and researching topics relevant to the book. The appendix contains reproducible forms, templates and maps including a grid, timeline page, lined report pages, several outline maps of the region, as well as recipes, a list of animals mentioned in the Bible with verse references, and answers to the daily quiz questions. For a really in-depth, complete and well-rounded study of the Bible lands, you can't beat this for map practice, activity suggestions, and enjoyment. Cindy Wiggers and Dianna Wiebe have put together another winner in the Trail Guide series. Required resources for this study include a Bible, an age-appropriate Bible atlas (two recommended ones are listed below), a set of Bible Activity Maps and The Bronze Bow. Recommended (but not required) resources have also been listed. Items with no prices are items that are unavailable or ones that we are not able to carry. - Jess
