I LOVE this for my 5 year old homeschooled son.
Lauren
The pages are easily copied which makes it a re-usable text book and the lessons introduce simple map concepts and geographical vocabulary in a way kids understand.

I use the 3d grade book with my 1st grade class and the kindergarten class uses the First Grade book.

I am using this workbook as part of my 4-year-old son's homeschooling curriculum. I taught Kindergarten for two years before getting pregnant and staying home, and this workbook is as good as - if not better than - the geography resources I was using to teach Kindergarden. I bought this workbook along with the Kid's Atlas (purchased separately), but we haven't used the altas yet. I don't think we'll need it for another year or two. I highly recommend this workbook for beginning social studies!

I use this book with my first grade class. It is perfect for that level. However, Evan Moor has another product that I like even better called Daily Geography Lessons. They are sold by grade level. I use the 3d grade book with my 1st grade class and the kindergarten class uses the First Grade book. To me, this is fine for the normal first grade.DAILY GEOGRAPHY PRACTICE GR 3] and ][[ASIN:1557999708 Daily Geography Practice, Grade 1

This is a terrific book! My plan is to use this for 1st grade (and you certainly can) but it really is a K-2 level book. Not only is it educational, but its content is fun for the kids.. I'd definitely recommend it!

We use this in our home school for my first grade daughter. The lessons are age appropriate and simple with fun activities. The only problem I have with this book is on many of the pages it instructs the child to color something in, cut it out and glue it on the next page. However, cutting it out will leave the next page riddled with holes and unusable so I'm not sure how they want the child to do this. Many of the lessons are not able to be completely finished because of this. Annoying and an easy fix for any book publisher. I'm not sure why they didn't catch this problem.

The concepts in this book are clearly presented, in an easy-to-understand (for a child) format, with each activity being directly related to the concept being taught. The pictures are clear (black and white drawings) and relative to each lesson. Instructions are simple and easy to comprehend for a young child.

The only issue with this book (and many others that try to span multiple grade levels) is that the information advances too quickly. I suppose if one completed a single page each month for the span of K-2 it would be perfect, but the activities sutable for a kindergartener would certainly be boring for a second grader.

The book works well for my family as we modify activities and have multiple grade levels learning from the same book. I would recomend the book, but suggest that it not be used as the single source of geography education for your child unless you only plan to use it once in a while.

My 5 year-old son enjoyed working with this book. He reads and writes, so we used the book as independent study. Since we have done decent amount of worldly travel, played with Geo Puzzles for many years and now enjoy the Google Earth Program, we found the book a good balance between learning new concepts and reviewing old ones. Map Skills along with Landforms & Bodies of Water have introduced new vocabulary. The Continents and Oceans were a review. We recommend the book to the very young ones who enjoy learning.

I'm a homeschooling mom and I really wanted to introduce a great Geography curriculum to my 1st grader this year. I've been watching and reading blogs from other homeschoolers and the main geography book that comes up is this Beginning Geography by Evan Moor! I honestly can't tell you if I EVER saw a negative review on it! Needless to say that "sold" it to me...

We are nearing the end of the first section and my son and I both love the book! He enjoys doing it because he gets to cut, paste, color AND write! He likes the pictures and it's not too hard for him. I can read aloud a lot of the directions, but the words are fairly simple and he's able to read portions to himself.

We love this book and will be sad when it's over...but it's giving him a great introduction to one of my most favorite subjects!
