Evan Moor Daily Geography Practice Review
Daily Geography Practice by Evan Moor is a teacher/parent lead curriculum that is correlated to state standards. Included within each of the 36 lessons is a teacher resource page, vocabulary, reproducible map, map transparencies for each lesson, two geography questions per day, a challenge question for the week and an answer key.
The teacher resource page introduces the new geography skill. It is useful for guiding the teacher/parent in instructing the student and helping to expand on the topic as necessary. This is what separates it from other geography workbooks. This is a whole curriculum.
I had the opportunity to review 2nd, 4th and 6+ grades with my children. We found that the pages were nicely illustrated, clearly labeled and easy to understand. My youngest kinestetic learner enjoyed using the transparencies that accompanied each lesson with a dry erase marker as it gave her something to keep her hands busy while I was instructing her. This also aided in giving her a better understanding of the topic.
We aren’t accustomed to studying Geography everyday. Evan Moor suggests doing smaller chunks of it everyday in order to obtain a greater retention of facts.
