We use Heritage Studies by BJU Press for our history and geography curriculum every year. My daughter needed a little extra work with map skills so I added this daily workbook. It's a short and sweet, 2 question, daily lesson that she really enjoys. Her map skills have definitely improved. I plan on continuing with these workbooks in addition to our history and geography curriculum.
The concept is simple; introduce a type of map rotating the area of the map. The private school and public school in my area went over one map each year and checked off geography for the year. Friends said their children hated the typical 4th grade "U.S. Regions" program. Since we had used the Daily Geography program, our child already knew the types of maps and had introductions to the states, so studying the regions could truly build on the commonalities between the regions and was more fun. At first we would do all 5 daily lessons on one map in one day. But later realized that splitting into several days gave our child an opportunity to see the map several times - this actually helped a lot with retention and we wish we had done that from the beginning (hard to resist but leads to better academic success).
We used Daily Geography for Grade 2 and 6 this year. It was a wonderful way to quickly learn and reinforce concepts. All of my girls enjoyed doing it. Each week there is a short lesson and then just a few questions each day on the lesson.
