Product Description:


Knowledge Quest Intro from Rainbow Resource on Vimeo.

These collections provide complete sets of outline maps for different periods in history. The World History sets contain maps for the following four time periods: the Ancients, Middle Ages, Dawning of the New World, and Modern World. There are between 16 and 27 for each period. For example, maps in the Ancients period include a map of early civilizations, ancient Egypt, India, the Assyrian empire, China's Shang kingdom, early Greece, ancient Africa, the Persian empire, the conquests of Alexander the Great, the republic of Rome, and many more). The maps have cities, countries, and bodies of water labeled (although on some these may be blank with instructions for students to label them). The set also includes discussion questions for each map. These consist of 1 -5 points for each map and may include looking at rivers, figuring distance, tracing routes, labeling various places, reading the map keys, drawing a compass rose, using an atlas or globe to find additional places, drawing in physical features, and coloring the maps according to directions. You can use these maps on their own, or to supplement your study of each time period. For World History, you can either buy the complete set, with a hardcover book of all the maps and the CD-ROM, or the complete set on CD-ROM only. Maps on CD are in PDF format and requires Adobe Reader (a free download). - Melissa

My kids need to know geography better and I'm hoping this set of maps will help me accomplish that. I'd like them to learn modern political boundaries along with the historical political boundaries to understand their world around them and how history can explain modern conflicts.

Can you use this with any other history curriculum or does the history portion need to be Knowledge Quest as well?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I use this as a supplement to my own history curriculum (we use mostly biographies and “living books” for history). I usually assign some map work when we are reading about a particular topic, but it is surprisingly difficult to find a printable map specific to a certain part of the world and often difficult to find a map with historical places marked on it. This has been a great resource when we wanted a map for the Mongol empire with Marco Polo’s travels, the Crusades, Charlemagne’s empire, etc. You can print one with sites unlabeled and then have your student look at the completed one to label the important sites. Obviously it won’t follow another history curriculum exactly, but it has so many maps, I think you’ll find that it covers most of the things you would need. Hope that answers your question!

Amazing resource for all ages!
I bought this to use alongside our history curriculum, and it is everything I was hoping it would be! I have always tried to have my kids locate things on a map as they read about them, but it took so much time on my part to find the information for them. This involves just enough work for them to learn the information, but not so much work that it takes a ton of time (and almost no work for mom!). Moreover, I am using this for high school, junior high, and all the way down to my 5th- and 3rd-graders. Highly recommend this product!

Great map selection
I'm glad I decided to purchase Map Trek. It has so many maps and I think it will work for all of our homeschooling years.

This product is amazing! It was extremely easy to implement in our homeschool day and can be used for children in preschool through high school I will be using it for many many years It is definitely worth the value! My daughter (4 1/2) was so excited about learning geography using the maps and lessons Very little teacher prep is necessary unless you are making certain adaptations There are helpful integration guides found online that correlate with popular history spines They can be used in addition to the differentiated lesson plans which are leveled and divided into three age or grade levels This map set works great for various learning styles depending on how you use it Read my detailed review of the complete collection e-books and how we used it on my blog at http://totplayblogspotcom/2012/07/schoolhouse-review-map-trek-e-bookhtml I would love for you to see how my daughter and I used the maps Thank you for stopping by and feel free to comment
