First Semester: U.S. Geography

Book: National Geographic United States Kids Atlas

Supplies: Notebook and folder, colored pencils

In this one semester class, students will develop map skills while studying about each of our 50 states. By the end of the semester students will be able to locate and identify each state on a U.S. map as well as know major rivers, the oceans, state boundaries, state symbols and nicknames, landforms, capital cities, and more! We have a geography fair at the end of the semester which is a lot of fun and doesn’t require huge parental time investment because we prepare for it each week throughout the class. 

Second Semester: Marvelous Michigan

Book: Our Michigan Adventure by David B. McConnell; ISBN #0910726353

There are many different editions of this book. Please be sure to get the copy published in 1998 with black cover and orange Michigan. Used books are available on Amazon and Ebay.

Supplies: Folders for homework and colored pencils. Either an atlas with a detailed Michigan map or simply a Michigan map (not road map) will also be needed.

This course will help the student discover and learn the uniqueness of our state of its rich history and  geography. Michigan history truly comes alive for the children in this class.
