This year in our homeschool, our goal is to learn the 50 States! We found the perfect unit study to help us along the way as well as brush up our geography skills. Beautiful Feet Books just released a new Geography Through Literature program and I am so excited to share it with you!
Beautiful Feet Books sent me a free copy to share my honest review, as always any opinions expressed are my own.
Overview of Beautiful Feet Book’s Primary Geography
I have a special place in my heart for literature based curriculum. The approach to teaching subjects using a vast variety of books works so well in our home. Beautiful Feet Book’s Primary Geography study incorporates wonderful resource books that teach basic geography terms and concepts as well as takes you on a journey through USA geography history. Learning through literature is a real winner in our home and I encourage you to try it out!
They did such a great job blending geography and learning the USA!
What’s included in Beautiful Feet Book’s Primary Geography?
If you are new to Beautiful Feet Books, their programs include a course teacher guide and books going along with the course guide. Here is what you get in the Geography Through Literature K-3 Pack:
- 1 Beautiful Teacher/ Course Guide – 36 Lessons
- 1 USA Map – It’s Huge and will be Colored during the lessons!
- 11 Books – From Amazing Geography Resource Books to Beautiful Picture Books
How Much Prep & How Many Lessons are in Beautiful Feet Book’s Primary Geography
The Geography through Literature K-3 is 36 pre-planned lessons. You can do 1 lesson per week, which would last a traditional school year or 2 lessons per week to finish up in half a year. Also you could be like us and work through 3-4 lessons per week, because its that good! As far as prep goes, this unit was pretty open and go. I printed out some of the picture downloads from the website and just had those ready when we got to those lessons.
What I really enjoyed was all the additional books and videos provided to take a deeper dive! If your child was really engaged in a certain topic then these help you keep that eagerness to learn and find more great resources.
My Favorite Part about Beautiful Feet Book’s Primary Geography
In this unit study, you are provided some books that are more of a reference guide that you utilize throughout the entire unit. Geography from A to Z and Our 50 States were some of my favorite resources in the entire unit. They are fun and engaging for kids but super educational. These resources will be used for years to come!
I highly recommend this unit from Beautiful Feet Books, its a beautiful way to introduce geography and the USA to early elementary students. This is a must add to any homeschool geography curriculum.
