Reviews - What do customers think about Blackline Maps Of World History: The Complete Set 5000Bc-Present?
CD-ROM is not for World History Aug 1, 2008
This book comes with a bonus CD-ROM...however, mine was for the Blackline maps of American History, not World History. As I really need the CD-ROM more than the book, it is completely unhelpful and not what I expected. I am not sure if it was a packaging mistake or if they are all this way, but I will be returning the product.
A Homeschooler's Geography Time-Saver! Jul 31, 2008
Because I went through public school, my knowledge of geography is abysmal. So, when I started homeschooling, I wanted my children to know geography much better than I did. But I'm just too busy to find maps, especially ancient ones, on the internet. Thank goodness Terri Johnson did it for me! Her maps are detailed without being overwhelming, and they're easy to label. There's plenty of white space on the maps, which is great for young children who can't write small. We will be using these maps all the way through to high school graduation--we'll never need another map resource!
Fantastic Blackline Maps Jul 18, 2008
It took me a while before I splurged on the Blackline Maps of World History. Instead I spent WAY to much time trying to find the right map somewhere in internet-land. After much frustration, wasted time, and difficult to read maps, I finally bought this. All I can saw is WOW! These maps are fantastic, and believe me I've seen enough bad ones to know. They are clear and very pleasing to the eye and the best part is that they come in two forms: a blank map and a filled in map key. This is very important because sometimes it can be very tricky filling in maps from ancient times, especially depending on what atlas you are using. Terri Johnson has made it so easy for us all. I love these maps and my children think they are pretty good too.
GREAT resource for a good price Jul 17, 2008
I didn't purchase this resource when I first discovered it as I was hoping to find what I needed online. This was a mistake. I found a few maps, but, they didn't really fit my needs and they weren't very professional looking. This is an all-in-one resource with maps from all throughout history. We have found it very helpful in giving a sense of where places are on the globe. This was learned in context of our history studies and therefore provided a base to remember things rather than just looking at a map of "somewhere". Each map has 2 versions, the filled in one and the one to be filled in. This is helpful for correct placement on the map to be filled in, and the filled in map can be used for other projects as well. The CD that is included makes printing off multiple copies of maps extremely easy, and is a cost saver for those that have multiple children or want to use the map in multiple ways. The lesson plans are helpful as they give directions on what to do and helps point out important things to note on the maps. This resource is highly recommended!
Outstanding Resource Jul 16, 2008
I have used this book for three years now as a supplement to our study of history. The maps are outstanding, and I like the option of a filled-in map or let the child fill it in. An excellent resource, especially for all homeschoolers!
