Geography resources

 I stumbled upon this book and bought it as a last minute addition to our Fall lineup. What made me pull the trigger? It's all planned out (27 weeks of lessons), and I don't have to make any copies! The weekly schedule goes like this:

Day 1: Study the New State, Complete the State Fact Table, Locate and label each state onto the dashed, black and white map. Draw all states studied thus far.

Day 2: Locate and label each new state onto the dashed, black and white map. Draw all states studied thus far.

Day 3: Locate and label each new state onto the dashed, black and white map. Draw all the states studied thus far.

Day 4: List, from memory, the states studied thus far. Using the blank textbox, draw, also from memory, all the states you have learned.

I'm allocating maybe 15- 20 minutes for this daily. 

 

I plan on using the National Geographic Kids United States Atlas to fill in the State Facts Table in the above book. The folks at Nat Geo sent it to us a while ago, and I wasn't sure how we would use it other than as a reference book. I'm pretty psyched about the combo, and I also plan on using the companion volumes of both books next semester to study the rest of the world.
