For a book excerpt that includes the first full lesson, please go to:
Each lesson has six parts as follows that serve the teacher and the student:
1. "Where in the World?" Presents each lesson's geography from a "whole world view" to give context within our great big God created world. Teacher’s utilize this as the starting point to show the area that will be taught for the lesson.
2. "A Closer Look!" This is a summary map showing the current lesson's geography plus previously learned geography in that area of the world.
3. "Zoom Me In" An enlarged view of the area that the student is learning about, this is a reference sheet for the worksheet portion which is called "Now, Let's Trace, Color and Label!"
4. "Tid-Bits" THIS IS NEW!!! The Tid-Bits section gives bits of information about the geography that the student is learning. The information varies widely. From the people and their accomplishments and culture to the land that they live upon; to the statistics and facts about the area like population, size of a lake, and depth of the sea. This section is provided as a launch pad for discussion. It is great to pick out a few key topics that your students will find interesting, or that you can create an activity around. Of course you can always simply read the Tid-Bits section directly to your students and utilize the “Discussion Dive” and “Dig Deeper” pages for tips and examples on how you can make geography more engaging while beginning exposure to the dialectic and research skills your students need.
5. "Now, Let's Trace, Shade, and Label" This part is the same zoomed in view in part 3 however it is blank and is ready for the student to trace, color, and label. There are step by step instructions.
6. "Memorization through Repetition" This part is an accumulative black line map worksheet that asks the student to practice all geography learned on an ongoing basis. Great for review & making the geography stick!
Before you know it, your student will have the Ancient Empires & More concretely memorized through drawing and discussion.
If you are associated with Classical Conversations, you'll find that this guide will work for you on a week to week basis for the entire Cycle 1 Geography and is compatible with the new 5th Edition released in 2018.
