When asked if I was interested in reviewing Evan-Moor’s Beginning Geography for K-2, I knew it would be perfect for my 5 and 7 year old daughters.
What is Evan-Moor Beginning Geography?
Beginning Geography is a three unit reporducible workbook available from Timberdoodle for $10.75. You are allowed to reproduce the copies you need for your family. As a homeschoolimg mom of 7, I love it being reproducible. It makes workbooks like Beginning Geography affordable for our family.
The three units cover map skills, landforms & bodies of water, and continents & oceans. There is a fourth section that shows the animals of the world. The animals of the world maps serve as a type of early atlas for young learners.
Each unit is independent from the others so you can work through them together or separately. The directions are clear and concise. My 7 year old loved being able to read the directions for her younger sister! The activities are simple yet engaging. I know my children love to cut and paste! There is a matching game to learn your landforms vocabulary which children can cut out and color all on their own.
Also included in Evan Moor’s Beginning Geography from Timberdoodle were two full color maps. Answers for all the worksheets are included in the back of the book for easy checking. I did it along with my children as my 7 year old is a new reader. However, for a fluent reader, this would be a great independent activity. Review and assessment sheets are included as well.
My girls and I both loved Beginning Geography. It is a great introduction to geography that teaches excellent skills and is simple and short. Perfect for the K-2nd grade crowd. It is one of my girls’ favorite parts of the day. They are always asking if it is time for geography.
