    About the Daily Geography Series:
    While most children are fascinated with the study of geography, many teaching parents are discovering that without regular exposure, newly acquired information is not retained. If this is the case with your child, or if your state requires a grade-appropriate geography study, then Daily Geography Practice is what you are looking for.

    With just fifteen minutes a day your child will become geographically literate. Each of the lessons is correlated to the National Geography Standards and includes a resource page that consists of a statement of the geography standard and skill being addressed, background information and suggestions for introducing the skill, geography vocabulary and definitions, and an answer key for the lesson.

    Your child's page will be made up of two geography questions for each day of the week that progress in difficulty from Monday to Friday and an extra credit challenge question at the end of each week. Short, sweet, and to the point, Daily Geography Practice will assure that your children are geographically astute.

    Great book! September 16, 2014
    Reviewer: Jim E.  
    My daughter did really well with this book. I only wish that the series continued on higher than grade 6! We had to look for a different series that was similar, but didn't find one that we liked as well.

    I like what it's teaching September 15, 2014
    Reviewer: Heather  
    I love the lessons and what it teaches... i'm annoyed that all the answers are right on the front pages of the lessons. It's not a book i can give to my 6th grader to use independently. I have to make a bunch of copies and read the lessons to her. It's a bother but i do like the book. For those who don't need to worry about kids peeking at answers this will work great!

    Love the maps January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Robyn  
    This is a great way to learn to read different kinds of maps, learn more about the longitude & latitude lines, understand how a GPS works and that is just some things this mom learned. My daughter is learning the above things as well as where various fun destinations are. She really enjoys the Challenge section at the end of each week.

    Perfect for Review November 28, 2012
    Reviewer: Amy  
    This book is too easy for middle school and up. If, however, map-reading/geography fell through the cracks, this is a great book to get, even for the older student. I never did find a geography text book that covers the topics included in this workbook. So, I am quite happy to use this book even if it is not challenging for my older two children. And, even though it is quite simple, all of my children have learned something they did not know. This workbook is definitely a teacher's edition. The answer key and lesson explanation are on the same page. It is tricky to use this book for students. I ended up buying the student workbook elsewhere. However, as a teacher's edition, it is great. Each lesson has a correlating map. Plus, there are transparencies for those lucky home-schoolers that have access to an overhead projector. Each lesson has about 10-12 questions about the maps. The questions are divided into groups of two or so for each day of the week. Each lesson does have a short introduction to the map being studied, as well as some vocabulary. For the most part, it is an adequate explanation, but, it almost seems like it was written as a supplement to a text. For someone who has difficulty with maps or geography, this might be a problem. I would recommend this book for large families as there are short lessons with little to no prep. I would recommend this book for any student that needs a refresher or review of maps/geography.

    Daily Geography Review by Joy in our Journey January 5, 2012
    Reviewer: Julieanne from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    Here are some of the features which I really like about using Daily Geography Practice - Grade 6+ in our home:
    The pages are reproducible for classroom use - in one classroom.  My girls are now working through the lessons together, so I'm allowed to photocopy the pages so that both of them have their own individual worksheet pages.  Even if there were 10 children in my family, I wouldn't need to buy a separate book for each child.  That's economical, and I appreciate that!

    Each of the 36 weekly sections can be completed in five 15-minute time periods during the week, or in longer sessions one to three times per week.  We chose to work through each weekly section over two longer sessions each week.

    Background information and an answer key is available for the teacher, for each weekly section.  

    A map page is included for each week's lesson.

    Vocabulary and question pages are included for each week.

    A geography glossary can be found at the back of the book.  In fact, it is printable so the students can make their own easy reference booklet throughout the year!

    This book also contains 36 black-and-white transparencies of the maps and globes in the book.  If I was using this in a classroom setting, I would use overhead pens to highlight and mark special features as we would be discussing the week's lesson and questions.

    I've found Daily Geography Practice - Grade 6+ to be very simple for me to use as a busy home educating mom.  The only advanced preparation required of me is to photocopy the girls' weekly lesson worksheets, and to check to see if I need to grab the globe or have us sit in front of the wall map in our schoolroom.  Other than that, this book is very simple to use.

    Daily Geography Practice is also available for Grades 1-5.  While we haven't used any of the earlier levels, we would have, had I known about this excellent series of geography study workbooks.
