Great text and resources
Thus far my daughter and I have really enjoyed this geography text/program. She is currently working on chapter 3. The text has beautiful pictures, is laid out well, and presents both the history of map-making and explains current mapping technology, such as different GPS systems. My only criticism is that I have to print the quizzes and assignments from the CD-ROM. This is a slow process. I would prefer to have the option to just buy a workbook to go with the text.

Good program
I was wanting a semester long program for my high schoolers that they could use themselves. I got them started and they are doing well. There is a lot to do, so I weeded out activities, etc. to make it manageable. Now all I do is grade their work. This is the best program I found for a half year credit, which is all they is required in Texas.

Love this!
I really like this Geography curriculum. It is very comprehensive. The CD-Rom has all the printables you need and is easy to navigate. Map labeling and memorization, fact files to fill in for all the car ntinents and countries, several activities for each lesson (make a compass, go orienteering, go geocaching, find longitude & latitude....), plus quizzes and exams with answer keys. And it's good for a full-year high school credit!

My daughter is in the 9th grade. She loves Ancient History so I chose a geography course that emphasized Ancient History. After three weeks she came to me a bit frustrated because the only new information was the maps. She wanted a course that would teach her modern culture as well as the physical geography of the world. This course seems to strike a better balance, emphasizing how modern technology is used in the study of geography and includes world culture from a Christian worldview.
Shawna J on Sep 25, 2017
It has a Christian World view and the option to use for a 1/2 year credit for high school.
Lynn I on Sep 20, 2017
We've used Mystery of History and liked it. This looks to be a similar format. We were looking for a high school level geography course with a Biblical worldview. This looks to be just what we need/want!

Roxie W on Jun 22, 2017
This program looks interesting because it incorporates science, geography, and culture. I was looking for something new to try with my high school son. He wanted something that was scheduled by day, and this seems to fulfill that. The activities on the CD-ROM will hopefully reinforce the information in the book and make it stick.

Cathy Duffy Reviews--type of Geography I thought would fit in our schedule of time with our workload. We supplement with Tapestry of Grace also.
Growing Garden A on Sep 19, 2016
I did a lot of research on high school geography courses and I liked the sound of this one best...full year geography credit, Christian perspective, covers all aspects of geography (mapping, physical, AND cultural).

Are the notes sections in the the text or on the CD drive to print? Do I need one per student?
User on May 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All the tools needed to complete the program, hands-on activities, atlas building, note-taking pages, memorization lists, research questions, quizzes, tests, and answer keys are included in the CD.
The textbook only contains the lessons.

You do not need one per student. As long as you are using it for your family.

The printable material from the CD reads as follows: "Making copies of any part of this product, for any use other than a single-family homeschool, is a violation of US copyright law. For school or co-op licenses, please contact the publisher."
God Bless...
Would this be considered secular or does it contain religious content or promote religion. (Can I order it through a California charter school?)
A shopper on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: North Star Geography includes Christian content.
is this considered a full credit or half of credit for high school?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We would consider it a full high school credit (assuming you completed it as designed).
