A supplemental skills program, these practice books are packed with activities. Intended to be taught by direct instruction rather than independently, most activities will require a map or globe to complete. The good news is that these are included right in the book. No, not an actual fold-out map or spinning globe, but printed maps of the section of the globe or map that go with that activity.
The books are divided into a 36-week layout, and there is a map to go along with each week. The Grade Level Teacher Books provide the weekly lessons which include a teacher resource page (answer key, background information, vocabulary words, and definitions) plus the reproducible Student Worksheets (map, two geography questions for each day, and a challenge question for the end of each week). Each book covers some similar items (at the appropriate age level, of course) as well as some different geographic items or regions. The Student Practice Books are non-reproducible and do not include an answer key. They are used if you do not wish to copy the student worksheet pages from the Teacher Book. Teacher Books are 160 pgs, pb, and include access to download the 36 maps. ~ Zach
