Soli Deo Gloria:Map Skills. TOS Review

Soli Deo Gloria Resources is a Christian company that sells, unit studies, Ebooks, bible studies, and more. We were given their unit study "Map Skills" by Kim Kargbo to review. "Map Skills" is a three week unit study that introduces K-3rd graders to basic geography and map skills. It could also be adapted for older elementary students. Each day of the unit has a list of activities to choose from as well as a weekly Bible verse to memorize. The author recommends choosing one of these geography books based on your child's skill level to accompany the study. I do not own any of them, and from what I could see any basic geography/map skills book could work. To complete the study you will also need a variety of maps, a compass, blank maps(from the Internet), a map of your town, various materials, and any books you choose to go along with the study. This study is very open ended and flexible. Topics covered range from: Map Reading, Supplemental math skills, Language arts, Bible Comprehension, and of course Geography. "Map Skills" is available from Soli Deo Gloria Resources in either Ebook or print format. It is priced at $14 dollars. The only worksheets included are weekly Bible verse worksheets, and there are no specific links included. You will find a short list of recommended literature to go along with the study if you so choose.

"Map Skills" was given to me for free from Soli Deo Gloria Resources in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was given.
