You, too, can travel the world!

By

What better for a first adventure, than to travel the world! This is my first foray into the blog world and I was asked to review an e-book published by a favorite of mine, The Old Schoolhouse (R) Magazine, affectionately known around here as TOS.  They are fond of making new friends; so, walk up to the front door and introduce yourself.

Travel the World is the 56 page June 2010 Module to the Schoolhouse Planner.  Written to supplement the Planner or to stand alone, this e-book is an effortless hop, skip and jump across the land and waters of our earth.  This is geography.

Ready, set…download…go!  Walk across every continent and swim every ocean, while learning about the globe and maps, latitude and longitude, the equator, the isthmus and more.  The travel planning for this unit study has all been done for you.  Printable games, puzzles, coloring pages, and copywork are available in addition to more than 80 links at your fingertips.

From lapbook beginnings with “My Travel Book” to the high school expansion section, Travel the World is easily adapted to K-12th grade.  Everything is here for your trip to be a success, but we found that the use of a globe (which is not supplied with this e-book) made for smoother travel.

Travel the World for $7.95.  You won’t find a better ticket price anywhere and at TOS Magazine’s  Schoolhouse Store shipping is always free.  Visit today for more great Planner modules, e-books, lapbooks and the one and only Old Schoolhouse Magazine!

I can sincerely recommend this e-book.  It is a crazy-busy, don’t-want-to-fail-my-children academically, already-researched-and-organized, homeschool-momma’s dream!  “The word geography comes from the Greek geo, which means earth, and graphy which means to write.  So geography is God’s handwriting on the earth.  When you study geography, you are studying God’s stage, story, and plan for man on earth.”  When we were finished with Travel the World, I felt like we had done just that.

Blessings,

Penny

    Thank you, Elizabeth. It suits me and motivates me to write. I told my sister that it’s the same feeling I get with new stationery. lol
