Review: Passport Geography--United Kingdom

I’m really excited about this new line of products, Passport Geography! Designed to be a one-week study, for all grade levels, I can see that they could easily be lengthened! They are packed with information.

Currently we are studying geography and history combined, continent by continent. This year my daughter, who is a high school senior, is also studying British literature. So it has been fun  to have this introduction to the United Kingdom to give us a background of this part of the world.

We thoroughly enjoy the video clips in this unit, which give us an overview of each country, detailing specific landmarks, various wildlife, etc. There are videos of castles, and cooking videos demonstrating how to make various recipes, as well. We always enjoy trying foods from various locations.

Each day we are given travel tips, mapping activities, geographic terms, recipes, information about a famous person from that country, a daily animal to learn about, and a biographical essay about an author on which to work daily. We especially like learning about the animals, and trying out the recipes!

One thing that is appealing about the Passport Geography studies is, they are divided into two levels: Scout (grades K-6), and Explorer (grades 7-12). So my high school senior can be learning along side my second and sixth graders!

Day 1, we all worked together; after that, though, Teen Girl decided she wanted to work on her own. Then, to my amazement, the boys decided they wanted to work through it without my assistance! Wow! That was great! Because there are times I need to work with Teen Girl, helping her finish up her high school years, and prepare for graduation, etc.

You can purchase Passport UK for $12.95 (combination pack), or $8.95 for either the Scout level, or the Explorer level. For a limited time, my readers are eligible to receive a discount! Use this code: GetUK24 for a 50% discount, valid through 10/24/2011.
