Child's Geography Volume 3: Explore the Classical World
What better way to ground your studies of ancient history than with a solid understanding of the geography of those cultures? Written in a similar style to the first two volumes, the third and newest volume in the A Child's Geography series explores the classical world - including Italy, Greece, Malta and the Balkans in 15 chapters. The text in each chapter transports readers to the region, imagining that they are touring the country, weaving in details of people they may meet as well as the history and stories of some of the buildings and sites. Full-color pictures of the landscape, landmarks and ruins adorn just about every page, giving readers the chance to see the places visited in the text. Occasionally you'll also find web links to encourage further exploration. I also love the various menus with popular dishes listed! Each chapter ends with prompts and questions for notebooking and discussion, and you'll find timelines, map activities, hands-on projects, recipes, the prayer guide and more on the enclosed CD-ROM. While the content of this course makes it a perfect companion to an ancient history study, you can also enjoy it on its own. You can work through it in a year spending two weeks on each chapter, or spend a semester on it going through one chapter a week. Even if you haven't tried either of the previous volumes, I would encourage you to jump into this one; it is well-produced, interesting and you will learn an incredible amount about the geography and culture (present and past) of the birthplace of Western Civilization. 224 pgs, pb.
