Category Description for Around the World in 180 Days:

A clever spin on the title of the classic book Around the World in 80 Days, this multilevel course does allow you to cover a lot of ground. Geography, history, religion, culture and current events are covered for all grade levels on a continent-by-continent basis. The two-volume set includes the Teacher’s Guide and a Student Workbook, both softcover with similar format. The student must do research to find the answers to various questions. The author suggests books and textbooks to use for research, and important people to find out about. Answers to the questions are recorded on the worksheets, (which are perforated and can be removed to place in a binder). Other interesting and pertinent information can be placed in the binder as well. Thankfully, answers to the questions are included in the study guide.

The order of study is not the typical Northern Africa - Eastern Asia - Europe - North America sequence that you normally find elsewhere. Suggested study time to cover the guide in a one-year period would be as follows: Africa, 6 weeks; Australia, 3-4 weeks; Antarctica, 2 weeks; South America, 5-6 weeks; Asia, 6-7 weeks; Europe, 6-7 weeks; North America, 4-5 weeks. Each unit begins with geography questions and terms to research, and continues to map work; outlining the continent, drawing major physical features (rivers, mountains, deserts, lakes, etc.), and marking countries and cities. In addition to answering questions about history, religion, culture and current events, students are also given writing and speaking assignments. To make the product useful for a wide grade range, questions which are too difficult for younger students are marked UE for upper elementary, JH for junior high, or HS for high school. Although the study as a whole is designed for all grades, the workbook is geared for students in 4th-5th grade and up. Suggestions for teaching grades K-4 are included in the Teacher’s Guide. Obviously, any attempt to cover geography and history on seven continents from Creation through modern times in one year for all grade levels with a 180-page study guide will only scratch the surface. This study will give a good overview of world geography, hit highlights of world history, and give some basic insights into various cultures. Use it as a framework to build in whatever direction you choose.

I wanted a geography program that wasn't too involved but offered a lot of information. This sounds like it might work

My high schooler wants a curriculum that covers the world from a Christian worldview, considers the economy, religion, politics and geographic location along with challenging her to research, reason, relate and document and this book covers all those perfectly!

Around the World in 180 Days came highly recommended by several parents in my home school groups. My son and I looked at many different Geography courses and decided that this one would fit our curriculum the best.
Richelle O on Aug 19, 2017
This sounds like a good supplemental resource for the Social Studies Curriculum I am using. Also, thought my grandson would enjoy the irony because one of his LA reading assignments is Around The World In 80 Days! Price is reasonable compared to what I found on Amazon and elsewhere.
Pamela H on Jul 25, 2017
I was told this would be a good supplement to Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide.

Meghann L on Feb 18, 2021
If you already did some geography (or other social studies that incorporated it) before buying this, what did 180 Days add? I want to strengthen my child's understanding of the world, but we've gone over a lot of things already. So since no samples or previews are provided I'm hoping to understand what this covers beyond the description. I also want to understand what the "research" a student must do is. Is it all inclusive or do they need to go on a library/internet scavenger hunt?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2022
BEST ANSWER: This is a great curriculum, but a ton of work is involved. None of the reading material is provided. Suggestions on books are listed, but I found, in our small town, that most of them were unavailable. Of course you can just get your own books on each topic, but I do prefer having reading material and books already provide to go along with the work. I would suggest this for students who are super interested in geography and the world as they would be inspired to do all the research and work.
Can I use the newer version (2011) student notebook with the 2000 edition of the teacher manual I already own? Or is it necessary to purchase the newer version of both?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There are significant changes between the two editions and I think it would be difficult to use the new student notebook with the older teacher manual.
WHat edition is this?
User on Jul 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's the 2nd edition.
Is this a catholic history?
Debbie on Dec 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We only used it briefly but I don't recall anything "catholic"
Does the Around the World in 180 Days student workbook only have the questions or are maps also included for completion of related map work?
Crissy on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The workbook only contains the questions, the maps have to be researched separately. We bought a world atlas so my boys could draw the maps. You will also have to purchase textbooks if you don't want your kids doing all the research online, although we are finding the textbooks don't have answers for everything… we are still working through Africa, the first continent in the book. Good luck!

Excellent option for all ages
This is an excellent option to teach geography, religion, and cultures with multi-age students. You can be as indepth as you would like with many wonderful suggestions for assisting you along the way on teaching this. We have chosen to make this a two year program to allow for greater understanding of our 7 amazing continents.
