Books for Kids GIVEAWAY: Geography From A to Z by Jack Knowlton

Why we love this book:

This is one geography resource book that every classroom and homeschool library should include. Geography From A to Z is not a story book. It is a geography reference book written and illustrated specifically for children. Accordingly, it is not the type of book you read from cover to cover during one sitting. It is however, a valuable resource during a geography theme study or as a year round reference book.

Geography Landforms for Kids from waddleeahchaa.com

Geography From A to Z is a dictionary of geography terms beginning with “archipelago” and ending with “zone”. The target age is early elementary; however, the concise definitions and bold illustrations can certainly be used by older children as well. This is a geography book that we can grow with throughout our school years.

Landforms Dictionary, Miss Engima, age 7

  • Each day, Miss Enigma would research and color a couple of pages of her Landforms Book.
  • Miss Enigma used our book Geography From A to Z to locate the landforms featured in her coloring book. We would compare the definitions and study the pictures.
  • She also used additional geography books from the library as reference resources.

Landforms Book Project, MacGyver, age 10

  • MacGyver used Microsoft Publisher to design and write his Landforms Book.
  • He cut and pasted pictures and text from the internet and also wrote original text.
  • This project was a combined lesson on how to research, write, design and use Publisher.
  • We have discussed the concept of plagiarism and giving credit to photos and text. However, in this early research project, I did not require him to site sources. That will come as he gets older.
  • This project was a lesson more on how to use Publisher and how to design a book project.

Hmmm…I’m going to say Hey this time! ;) I want to go to the Grand Canyon though!

Jeannine May 1, 2014 at 1:44 pm

Tara, The Grand Canyon is certainly one AMAZING landform! Hope you and your boys get to make that trip! I would like to share that adventure with my children as well.

Tara H May 1, 2014 at 10:28 pm

We’re going to the Creation Museum this summer. Maybe our next big trip could be the Grand Canyon! Thanks for all these ideas for geography. I think I mentioned it on here before, but I’m trying something different for our homeschooling next year. We’re going to be using My Father’s World curriculum. Four of our boys will be learning things together, and the focus of the whole first year is geography…so I need all these posts in book form! ;)

Your geography activities are so inspiring! I know my oldest boy would love this book+activity study. Thanks for sharing at the After School Linky!

I love all the ideas! I home school my 4 kids ages 8, 9, 10 and 11 and am always searching for fun things to do that will engage all their age levels. Thanks for posting these!

Jeannine September 4, 2015 at 7:55 am

Peggy, I hope you and your children have a wonderful school year. My kiddos thoroughly enjoyed our geography study! I love it when the kids are interested in topics like history and geography.
