Geography Matters Trail Guide to Learning Paths of Exploration Volumes 1 & 2 with CD

Give your students the tools to learn HOW to think about history, instead of expecting a mere recitation of facts! Six units cover language skills, science, history, geography, art and thinking skills as students learn about Columbus, Jamestown and the Pilgrims in Volume 1, and Daniel Boone, Lewis & Clark, and Trails West in Volume 2. Each unit features six lessons with five parts that's designed to be fit within a week or shifted to suit your scheduling needs. Small icons mark the appropriate grade level of activities, allowing this curriculum to be used for students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, and with enrichment activities for 6th graders.

Opening with "Steps for Thinking", each lesson is clearly structured and labeled, with teacher notes and any materials needed listed on the side. The main content is interspersed with lesson instructions that are written directly to the child, creating a smooth flow for each day's work.

Lessons include copywork/dictation activities; reader assignments that bring real literature into the curriculum; Parent Read-Aloud, Discussion, Narration, and Reflective Writing activities; and a word study to help students gain contextual vocabularies, as well as improve their spelling skills. Geography, Science and History connections weave history together with geography, while the Charlotte Mason approach to science helps children observe, record, and evaluate nature. Writing exercises are integrated throughout as a response to lessons, while drawing activities help students to improve their powers of observation. "Doing" activities help students think through the information they've learned, while receiving additional motivation.

The included Student Notebook (in the form of printable pages on CD-ROM) serves as a portfolio of student work with maps, charts, copywork passages for lower grades, unit games, and checklists. Required Resource list (by volume)

  • Volume 1 is 380 pages, hardcover, with reproducible game pieces and blackline masters in the back; student CD-ROM included.
  • Volume 2 is also 380 pages, hardcover, with reproducible game pieces and blackline masters in the back.

    answer 1
    It includes 2 large texts and cd-rom only. The readers are necessary to the lessons and are an additional (and substantial) expense.
