WonderMaps – Bright Ideas Press


Bright Ideas Press publishes many wonderful products such as Mystery of History, All American History, A Young Scholar’s Guide to Composers and more. They have recently added another product that will enhance your geography and history studies!

WonderMaps is a completely customizable program of over 350 maps. With this customization, WonderMaps gives you the ability to enrich your child’s studies whether it is geography, history, literature or Bible. Being able to see  a map and place where events happened and people lived brings to life the lessons we are learning.

WonderMaps is easy to navigate. You have several ways to find exactly what you need. You can choose World maps, USA maps, Historical maps or Thematic Maps. Once you select which area you want, you are then given a menu to select and customize.

By clicking on the text, you can select the area you would like to view and see the detailed map.

On the left hand side, you can customize your map. From rivers, river names, capital cities, land forms and more, you can create a map that fits your needs.

You can see above the extent to which you can customize. From simple black and white to a full color map with rivers, land forms and more!

If you are a Mystery of History or All American History user, WonderMaps includes all the maps used in those programs. However, WonderMaps is not limited to those curricula! It could simply be used for memorization of geographical information or any map study.

 

 

We have thoroughly enjoyed WonderMaps. We use a history curriculum not sold by Bright Ideas Press but WonderMaps has worked beautifully. I love the customization and that I can use it for reference, for fill in maps and maps skills. Honestly, I have just had fun playing with the maps!

If you use maps at all in your homeschool, WonderMaps would be a great resource. Maybe you have been looking for maps to supplement your studies. I suggest you look at WonderMaps and see if it would work for your needs. Here is a video tutorial of all the features of WonderMaps:
