Geography Resources We Are Using

We are using a wide variety of books to learn more about geography and mapping. These are just a few of our favorites.
Product DetailsThis book is a great all around first look at the subject with simple illustrations and an easy to understand text.

My World & Globe by Ira Wolfman
We got this book used so it was missing the stickers and stamps but we are having tons of fun with the games and other activities listed in the book. My daughter loves the odd facts element and will spout them out to friends and adults everywhere....the grocery store, church, the neighbors.

We were gifted several levels of this Steck-Vaughn series, slightly used from a Church in Charlotte....literally manna from heaven! I'm not always a big fan of workbooks but we are using some of the material to work on basic skills to keep up with some semblance of "real school" work.

Mapping Penny's World This is a really fun book to introduce the concept of mapping.

We are reading through this one slowly to find out more about North Carolina, the state that we live in.

Around the World in 80 Tales As we have sales around the world we are reading these enchanting folk tales from different countries.

Just for fun because we have our own special secret shortcut in the neighborhood.
We literally are jumping all over the world with our mapping activities and this book has lots of stories and creative activities from cooking to arts and crafts. LOVE IT!

There is only one thing Cammy loves more than paper dolls and it is mazes or puzzles. This book is a challenging mix of beautiful picture puzzles with hidden clues and a map.
When we have sales in the USA we look up the states in this book to get to know them a little better. It has the basic facts and a few interesting trivia facts for each state.

These are some of the resources we already had collected at home....I can't wait until we can get to the library to check out some more books. Cammy is now old enough to be her own card carrying member. Yeah!!!
