    Hi all. I’m looking at some different options to work on geography with my will-be 4th grader next year. We’ve been doing map work “visits-to” style for a couple of years, and I want to cover some other things also. Like direction, landforms, etc. I’m sure I could just teach those things, but honestly I need it in some format or it will never happen! I’ve been looking at some resources:

    Legends and Leagues

    *gasp* workbooks- Rand McNally, Evan-Moor, DK, etc.

    The A-Z picture glossary & Maps & Globes (don’t know what we could do along with it activity-wise, but I think he would need something)

    or….??

    Has anyone used Legends and Leagues? Or any of the others just to teach those skills/terms? Or something else I haven’t found yet? Any input appreciated!

    We used The Geography Book a few years ago.  It has lots of hands on activities.

    I’ll check it out! Legends and Leagues looks interesting too, though. Has anyone used that & loved or hated it?

    I HIGHLY recommend “Elementary Geography” by Charlotte Mason!!!

    For the A to Z book, we use it as drawing practice.  It works well for that.  Then we add the definition to the bottom of the page and look up real life pictures on the internet.  Easy peasy. 🙂
