By far, Ben’s favorite part of the Geography I set was the Student Text. We both enjoyed our time each day learning about a different country. We were able to cover the entire Middle East and North Africa during the review period. These were regions we had not spent much time studying in the past, and I found our study to not only be historically significant, but also very timely for current events. Learning about how the Jewish people came from Isaac, and the Arabs from Ishmael, both sons of Abraham, helped Ben to better understand the long-lasting battle over Israel that he hears on the news, as well as the conflict between Christians and Muslims. He was also on a quest from the very beginning to find out which country was formerly Persia. I’m not sure why that stuck in his head from the beginning, but it did. So when we got to Iran, it was a fun day of discovery.
With that said, I do have one minor criticism. You will need to have access to a copier in order to use the quizzes and tests. While the reviews are built into the Student Workbooks, the quizzes and tests are not. If I could provide one constructive criticism, this would be it — it would be pretty easy to add the quizzes and tests to the Student Workbook, or in a separate file that can be printed, or to include them as perforated pages with text only on one side in the Teacher Guide, so that they could be torn from the book. I simply find it difficult to copy pages from workbooks without a spiral binding, so providing a way for me not to have to do this would have thrilled me. But that’s honestly a minor annoyance and would not keep me from purchasing this useful curriculum.
