The lessons are designed to engage the children’s hearts and minds through variety and interaction. Keeping the notebook will only serve to encourage creativity as they become accustomed to producing a lasting product while experiencing hands-on learning.

Reviews - What do customers think about Galloping The Globe (Geography Matters)?
Great for homeschool geography fun! Aug 9, 2008
I purchased "Galloping the Globe" because I needed a comprehensive guide for teaching world geography to my children, 10, 9, and 7. This has turned out to be an excellent choice. I love the sections on each country which suggest activities, recipes, other supplemental reading and information on holidays in each country. Each month I choose a country to "visit" and go to the library and check out books for each reading level which are suggested in the chapters. Then each child reads one or two books and gives the group a report on their book. I read aloud the chapter from "Galloping the Globe", and we do a suggested activity, watch a movie, or make a recipe from the country. You will also find a fill in map for each country, and a flag to color. I wish there was another book with more countries! I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about other countries.
