Publisher Description:

180 Days of Geography for Sixth Grade provides teachers and parents with 180 days of daily practice to build students' geographical knowledge and skills. Through these weekly units, grade 6 students will improve their geographic background knowledge, critical thinking and reasoning skills, map and spatial skills, and answer photo- and text-dependent questions. This essential social studies resource provides teachers with the tools they need to provide detailed instruction on map skills, key geographical concepts, and the five themes of geography: location, place, human environment/interaction, movement, and region.

With the world becoming more connected, learning about different places through a geographic lens will equip 21st century students with the skills they need to better understand diverse cultures and regions in an increasingly interdependent world. An introductory two-week unit focuses on teaching the map skills that students will use throughout the rest of the book. Subsequent units will introduce students to a new place or a type of map, and will explore the relationship between geography and culture. This book helps teachers meet National Geography Standards and state standards in their classrooms. Digital files are included.

Category Description for 180 Days of Geography:

A multi-faceted collection of daily, black and white worksheets designed to meet state and national geography standards. The focus is not only on map skills but also the study of cultures (how people interact with the physical world) as well as making applications to one’s own geographical circumstances. Covering five themes in geography: location, place, human-environment interaction, movement, and region; these worksheets utilize a weekly pattern. Days 1 and 2 are map skills (reading and creating maps), Days 3 & 4 are spent reading and thinking about those specifics and Day 5 covers “geography and me.” From a secular perspective, the series may reference topics or theories based on current theories and belief systems. Answer keys provide for objective questions (usually days 1, 2 & 3) and rubrics for evaluating the written responses. Item analysis sheets are also included, helping the teacher identify particular skills with which the student may be struggling. Worksheets are reproducible (for home or classroom) and the rubrics and analysis sheets are part of the included digital resources. In fact, you can input data into electronic files and print them. 216 pgs, pb ~ Janice

It is a good general overview on topics of Geography. Then the parent can decide if he/she wants to go more in depth with a particular topic on her own, or move on with the next subject presented in the book.

Clear Anti-Christian Bias in Text
I got this book thinking it would be an easy self lead study to learn about reading maps and learning about the counties in the world. I was not prepared for the political garbage added.

Week 12, Day 3 "Christianity is a missionary religion. That means that Christians try to convert others to Christianity....In some cases, people were forced to convert to Christianity"
Compared to the next paragraph:
"Islam is also spread throw conquest and missionary activity. However, the greatest force for the religion new births."

Multiple sections state opinion as fact, not what I imagined when I read the description.
