Category Description for Geography Drawing Series:

A common complaint against young people here in the US is that they don't know their place in the world. Now, this may be true, but what I really mean is that they can barely pick their own country or state from a blank map - let alone a country somewhere else in the world. This series is an easily accessible solution to the very problem faced by students everywhere today! The premise is simple: repeated tracing and copying of each country or US state will help students become familiar with its outline. Then, each week, students draw the cumulative pool of outlines learned (free-hand, from memory) - resulting in an ever increasingly completed continent map with political boundaries (or US map with showing states). Along the way, students will be researching and recording basic country or state facts. Books are organized into detailed schedules by day (Europe within a 24-week schedule and the USA within 27). Methods, objectives, and additional memorization techniques are included in each book. These books are consumable, but permission is given to reproduce pages for use within a single family. 233 pp, sc. ~ Zach

something new and different

I love that my child will be learning the shape of each state by drawing it. I especially love that these are short lessons and there are guides to help as they draw. Not too hard or time consuming, still valuable.

I've used this with my three older kids. It is an excellent tool that really helps them memorize states-location and capitals.

I like the worksheets. This info is no longer taught in schools. Thank you for writing this.

This seemed like a more enjoyable way to memorize states and capital. Drawing them repeatedly will surely reinforce memory.

I saw good reviews on it, and I thought it would be fun for my kids to learn US Geography by drawing. It's something different than just looking and studying their locations and names.

Does the book include answers to the state facts, or are we supposed to find that info elsewhere?
Kelly on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This book does not include answers to the state facts. The book suggests using "The National Geographic Kids United States Atlas" to fill in the questions asked about each state. There are also two web sites listed to help answer the questions. We have personally used the atlas suggested (just checked it out of our local library) and had success with it for what was needed for this book.
does this include mexico?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mexico is only included as the southern border and its relationship to the border states. The book features the states of the USA.
