In This Series
Because of the richness of these books it is possible to encompass a broad course in history, geography, and science. Since the text is challenging in some instances, oral comprehension and vocabulary can be incorporated as well. It is suggested that intermediate students and above keep a notebook or journal recording their finding on various research projects suggested through the course. Students should keep a glossary of terms at the back of the notebook, which will prove useful for reference through the course. Those wishing to complete the course in one year should complete approximately one lesson per week.

Angela5 Stars Out Of 5February 12, 2010AngelaWe did this study when my children were in 2nd, 5th, and 6th grade. We loved it! It opened up a lot of areas for discussion. Wonderful!
Craig Haynes3 Stars Out Of 5September 11, 2009Craig HaynesMy son is enjoying this course. It is simple, clear, easy to follow steps to explore different areas of geography through this course.
Heidi2 Stars Out Of 5May 8, 2009HeidiI tried to use this when my children were younger and I loved the concept of this curriculum. It entails reading four books written by Holling C. Holling and covering the geography contained in them. We read the first book, "Paddle to the Sea", and really enjoyed it. Beware, these are not Christian books! I had to explain a few things to my children about the traditions of people who do not know Christ, but overall it was fine.As we encountered the next book, I had to skip sections of it because it spoke of things pertaining to the "spirit world", which I did not feel I could read to my children. The last 2 books contained so many "spiritual ideas" not pertaining to Christ that we could not even read them. It was really too bad because we thoroughly enjoyed the first book.We have done 2 other Beautiful Feet curricula, The U.S. History for younger grades and the other for older students and have greatly enjoyed them. However, I could not recommend this particular Geography curriculum. If you are a Christian, you will probably be disappointed.
Q: I was wondering if the author of geography a literature approach provides enough research activities, vocabulary words etc in this book?
The author of this book provides for a number of in-depth research activities and map activities. There are a handful of vocabulary words provided for each literature selection.
