Category Description for Maps-Globes-Graphs Series:

This workbook-based series uses the five geography themes of movement, place, regions, location, and human/environment interaction to teach geography and social studies skills to students at different grade levels. The different grades have some degree of overlap in the skills practiced, with overlapping areas in the higher grades being investigated in much greater depth. To give an idea of when different skills are taught, the different levels focus on the following:

  • Level A - pictures, looking at pictures from above, maps from pictures, sides/compass directions on a map, symbols and keys, and globes.
  • Level B - landforms and water, maps and map keys, directions, globes, continents and oceans, boundaries, and map labels.
  • Level C - directions and map keys, distance and scale, resource maps, landform maps, route maps, grids, latitude, longitude, and graphs.
  • Level D - directions and legends, intermediate directions, grids, distance scale, route maps, relief maps, latitude, longitude, and graphs.
  • Level E - directions, symbols and legends, scale and distance, route maps, physical maps, special purpose maps, grids, latitude, longitude, the earth and sun, time zones, and graphs.
  • Level F - globes, symbols and directions, scale and distance, route maps, relief and elevation, latitude and longitude, climate maps, combining maps, comparing maps, time zones, projections, and graphs.
  • The five themes are re-introduced in each book - good for review or if you want to pick up in the middle of the series and not start at the beginning. Each section ends with a skill check, or practice test, in preparation for both the midterm and final tests (which are found in the Teacher's Edition). Throughout each chapter, students will answer both simple and thought-provoking questions, fill in the blanks, and do map and graph work. The workbooks are very colorful, and they are attractively laid out with maps or graphs on every page. The workbooks are consumable. The Teacher's Editions are very comprehensive, containing program overviews, scope and sequences, an introduction to the five themes of geography, teaching strategies for each chapter, blackline masters of all the maps and the midterm and final tests, test answers, all the student workbook pages with answers filled in, and eight to ten full-color transparencies of maps and graphs that are used in the grade level. While not essential to have, the Teacher Editions provide a lot of helpful ideas for classroom or co-op use (which can be adapted for home use also). The Teacher's Editions are also in full color. All the books in this series from Steck-Vaughn are pb. ~ Zach

    interactive and hands on worksheets to supplement social studies curriculum
    Nicole S on Sep 17, 2020
    I intend on teaching my three children geography together. I purchased one student book for them to share but realized that it could not be easily reproduced and was less expensive and easier for me to purchase 2 additional books so each of my children will have their own. I LOVE what I have seen looking through this book because it teaches the kids HOW to read many different maps and HOW to learn more from a map.

    Good but not worth cover price
    I purchased this because the program I was using is no longer in print. This was much more expensive but it does have more content and many more pages. I would never pay cover price for this book, but Rainbow offers it at a discount. Please be aware this student book does NOT contain the answer key. There is a teacher edition available which costs the same as the student book. In summary, this program has excellent quality content and is not skimpy on activities; however it comes at a more expensive price and does not provide an answer key within the student edition
