Following the same great format as Trail Guide to World Geography (see description), this book focuses on U.S. Geography. The thirty-six weekly lessons in this book cover the fifty states, organized by region. Students study the states at a rate of about two per week. This easy-to-teach book covers essential geographical facts and features of each state. This trail guide includes 5-minute daily drills, mapping, building a geography notebook--or using the optional student notebook--and a wide variety of additional projects. The literature unit in this book focuses on the Lewis and Clark expedition, using the book The Captain's Dog, by Roland Smith. Heavily used resources include the Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book or maps available on the Student Notebook CD. Other resources are also recommended to help enhance the study; these are listed below for your convenience. In this edition, all students use the Desk Atlas of the United States. A Geographical Terms Chart is recommended with these and all Trail Guide studies. We do not offer the chart that is recommended; however, it is available through Geography Matters. This Trail Guide was revised and updated in 2015 and includes a new QuickStart Section and new assignments throughout. Please note: students must use 2nd ed of Student Notebook with this edition. ~ Rachel S.
