Category Description for Memoria Press Geography:

Memoria Press Geography may be no-frills, but it's a high quality geography program. The maps are detailed enough for high-school students, yet simple enough for elementary kids (an impressive feat). The books are black & white with plenty of fill-in-the-blank exercises to test kids' knowledge. Comb binding.

GEOGRAPHY I covers the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe. The Student Review Book shows outline maps, plus lists of countries to write on the maps of the Middle East, North Africa, Mediterranean and Central Europe, the U.K., Scandinavia, and Eastern Europe. Section 2 has matching lists of countries/capitals for the regions listed. The 3rd section shows maps at the bottom with capitals listed at the top, and students are to write in the corresponding countries. Section 4 is similar, but students write both the capitals and countries in the blanks. In the back, students are given a list of all 54 countries in alphabetical order and asked to list the capitals of each. 43pp.

The Teacher Key includes a set of the same blank student pages as section 1 (now labeled as quizzes) listed above, plus answer keys to the maps and lists. The Tests are the same as section 3 listed above. 5 units and 29 lessons. 83pp.

GEOGRAPHY II covers Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. The Student Workbook has lots of activities that involve labeling maps and writing out the countries and capitals of each. Some pages have word banks (lists) for students to use, while others rely on no clues. Students have to remember some facts about each of the main regions and countries within. 103 pp.

The Teacher Key includes answers to all of the map activities in the Student Workbook as well as blank test forms and answers. Tests closely follow the format of the workbook exercises, with plenty of fill-in-the-blank and labeling maps.

In the Student Text, each broad unit is introduced with information about the terrain, climate, people and language. The lessons then go into detail about narrower areas such as the Horn of Africa and the Zambezi River region of sub-Saharan Africa. A large map shows students where oceans and rivers are located as well as political boundaries. Important features/events are highlighted like Victoria Falls near the Zambia/Zimbabwe border and the Rwandan genocide. Facts are shown in a table format and the narratives are very understandable for students. Although the books are in gray-tones, they manage to be engaging.

The Geography II Set includes the student workbook, teacher key, and student text for Geography II.

Geography II & Review includes the student workbook, teacher key, and student text for Geography II, plus both review books for Geography I. ~Sara

What would you add to make this a full social studies curriculum?
Ashley on Sep 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This is a straightforward Geography curriculum. The Geography book III has more to do with Social Studies. I don't know of a good world cultures book offhand. I use this with whatever History text I am using that year.

What age level is this book? And is it a year long?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is no age level given, but a 3rd grader can easily start on it. Simple text and maps.
I am doing it with my 4th grader and she finds it interesting as it starts with the Middle East and the first country is Israel.
I don't think it will take an year. There are 45 country information and a map markings for each country. So it depends how long you will take to do one country. If you have a child good at remembering then it will be easy to mark maps and go on. But again it is simply put . We read the text, I take copies of the map and she marks then next week I give the map again to mark to see if she remembers. In the meanwhile I start the next country. It is very interesting for them if you can combine a little knowledge about the present happenings in the particular country. But very very good book. Gives a lot of knowledge . I am glad I purchased it.
