This Dry Erase Geography Workbook is a fun way to learn State
(US) / Country (World) placement and facts. It is a spiral-bound
book of maps and questions that is designed for use with fine-line
dry erase markers. There are 8 full-color maps with activities.
The first one is the US map. The activities include fill-in-the-blank
state names, unscramble state names, ten questions plus a bonus
question, and finally finding and circling states on a map. Each
section has a similar set of activities. The maps include U S (States),
Canada, Mexico and Central America, South America, Europe, Asia,
Africa, and The World.
What I really appreciate about this book is that it is a portable
activity that can go with you when you are traveling and need an
activity to keep the kids busy in the car, or when you are doing
homeschooling on the fly while running errands and don't want to
skip Geography but don't want to drag that heavy textbook along.
It is also reusable--just erase and the student can do it again
another day. This is great for learning the states and countries,
which is a major part of any geography curriculum. This resource
can be used for any grade. I am using it for both a kindergarten
student and a middle school student. This resource is well worth
the investment, as it can be used throughout your homeschooling
years for multiple children and multiple age groups. For only $11.99,
how could you go wrong? This company also makes laminated and paper
placemats with these same maps as well as other geography helps.
