Rediscover the World around You!
Did you know that the Himalayas are still growing? That the Antarctica is a desert? That humans survived the last Ice Age? It's hard to know all there is to know about geography and its ever-changing landscape. But with I Used to Know That: Geography you'll be able to update your classroom knowledge and examine both the physical and human aspects of the world in short order. Inside you'll explore . . .
- Our physical world — rivers and coasts, plate tectonics, changing climates, the “ring of fire”
- The human world — causes of the American dust bowl, population expansion, and industrial growth
- Charts and maps — the countries of each continent, capital cities, and populations
- Geo Gems — surprising facts about our world
So whether this book becomes a trip down memory lane, a voyage of discovery, or a companion for future crossword puzzle clues, I Used to Know That: Geography offers something for anyone with an interest in our planet and the people who live in it.
This book couldn't have come at a better time. I really don't know who loves it more, me or the girls. There were so many things I had forgotten that are very interesting and the girls loved learning new facts. It opened up more for them because they would read something and we'd discuss it then it would lead to something else we would research. GREAT book for any homeschooling family or anyone wanting to brush up on their Geography!
I received this book for my honest opinion, no other compensation was received.
