Question

Any suggestions on how to adapt this for older children?

I would love to use this book with my upper junior high daughter, but don't want it to be too simplistic. Any thoughts on how I might go about that?

You could assign her a research report for each country. There are 6 or 7 countries. She could make a notebook. You could also assign her a presentation on the area that interests her most of the 6 or 7. The amount of depth you'd want her to go into would depend on whether you were using this as a yearlong/semester/quarter curriculum with her. For high schoolers and for your own knowledge. Jimmy Carter's books give a simple, but thorough understanding of the history of the region, particularly in relation to Israel.

The authors provide supplemental study materials on their website and additional suggested reading for older students in the book. You can also make the study more challenging by simply requiring them to complete more in depth reports and projects.

Question

Do you have to cover Voskamps "A child's Geography" Volume 1 before doing Volume two?

And could one study them in the same year, or is that too ambitious?

No, they are very different books. Volume I is earth science. Volume II is a study of the Holy Land--past and present. So you don't have to do Volume I before Volume II. Yes, you could do them both in 1 year (1 lesson/week). There's about 16 lessons in each book.

We did not use volume one first. I do not believe it made an essential difference in the understanding of volume two. Each chapter can stand on its own.
I believe the speed would really depend on the maturity of the child, but my nine year old could not finish volume two in one regular school season so I vote trying to cover both in one school year too ambitius.
