Geography can encompass so much more than identifying places on a map! North Star Geography from Bright Ideas Press covers basic geography skills (maps, navigation) as well as physical geography (topography, biosphere, structure of the earth) and human geography (environmental stewardship, agriculture, culture, heritage & more)- - -all from a Christian perspective.

The suggested schedules are perfect and easy to follow. Also, if you have any issues, there is a number to call and they are great. I had one issue (my computer) but they helped me and actually figured out what I needed to do. I do hope to see more from this company in the future because I will definitely purchase from them.
Sarah G5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect! Surprisingly easy!June 8, 2016Sarah GQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The CD that comes with this book is so easy to use and is perfect. Absolutely ideal. I wish all my curriculum was set up this way. Open up print exactly what we need for each lesson. Resources to choose from to meet your needs. Very versatile. Love that I don't have to keep track of 10 extra books. The book is great but they really undersell the resource cd that comes with the book! This is a good deal. Obviously, I am very pleased! Exceeded my expectations.
