Hi again! As I mentioned in my other post we are using The Good and the Beautiful for our history curriculum this year. Does anyone know if it includes geography? If not, what are your recommendations for geography? Is it bad that it might not be connected to our history studies? Thank you!KarenParticipant
No, it’s not bad for geography to not be connected to history. You and gour children will make your own connections as the places you’re studying come up in the news. Or in the read alouds, or as missionaries come to church, etc. I wouldn’t worry about it.CrystalParticipant
The Good and the Beautiful includes geography in their Language Arts curriculum.
I heard geography was in their LA but we already have our own LA. Bummer!Tamara BellModerator
SCM has a great geography series Visits To… that includes living books and map “drills” as CM referred to them. Besides reading through living books that bring the child into contact with the continent and cultures, you read through Material World and Hungry planet looking at what the world eats, types of houses people live in, religion, commerce, clothing, and so on. Both books are full of photographs allowing the students to not only hear about it but see it.
Nice Tamara, I’ll have to look at that for next year. I already bought some geography workbooks. Thanks everyone else!
Never mind, I’m going to get Visits to the Middle East.
