Child's Geography Volume IV: Explore Medieval Kingdoms
Fourth in the A Child's Geography series, this one or two semester course studies the vast and tiny kingdoms that made up Western Europe, along with the modern day countries of Western Europe. Picking up where the A Child's Geography Volume 3: Explore the Classical World (#007672) ended, this book explores the tumultuous times between the Classical era and the Renaissance. While having a basic knowledge of the Classical period is helpful in understanding the nuances of the Middle Ages, it is not necessary to complete the other volumes in the series before embarking on this journey.
Written in a similar style to the preceding volumes, history and geography are taught with a living book approach that weaves together engaging text and vibrant photographs and graphics. Students will truly feel as if they are walking in the footsteps of the great minds from the medieval world like Charlemagne, Ferdinand and Isabella, Joan of Arc, Johannes Gutenberg, and Martin Luther while exploring Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the tiny kingdoms: Andorra, Monaco, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg.
While the textbook is a standalone resource for readings and narration exercises, the author has provided a website link to download additional activities. This includes timelines for each chapter, maps to label (and completed maps), hands- on activities that include games and craft projects, recipes, supplemental reading resources, prayer guide and much more. Additional links are scattered throughout the text which provide media resources on a variety of topics. Chapters include bold vocabulary words with a glossary in the back. 240 pgs, SC. ~ Deanne
