Trail Guide to US Geography

Since we've been studying the Civil War and talking about states AND the kids really wanted to do some daily geography (what can I say? My kids LOVE maps), I thought it would be fun to pull a resource off the shelf- Trail Guide to US Geography.

During our Morning Gathering Time, the kids work on a two question geography drill using an atlas or whatever other resources they can come up with.

One day a week we do a mapping exercise with the current state.

Then there is a section of the book called Trail Blazing. Actually, each state has a Trail Blazing opportunity which consist of more indepth questions or a project of some sort.

What a perfect source for The Daily Quest! So, each day the kids find something in the box that will coincide with their skill level. The kids are having a lot of fun with it.

I am happy to see this. I PMed you on the FIAR boards asking you about it and have since been using this with the various states we are learning about.
