- An atlas, alongside a set of encyclopedias, is really all one needs to teach basic geography in a homeschool. by Sarah on 3/9/2015
I was given this atlas for review purposes. All opinions are honest and are my own.
An atlas, alongside a set of encyclopedias, is really all one needs to teach basic geography in a homeschool. Geography is a subject our family loves, but hasn't spent a lot of time on lately. Family Christian sent me this Discovery House Bible Atlas and I am excited to use it in several of our homeschool studies throughout the years.
I love it's "textbook" style---great pictures alongside in-depth and informative text means I can use this book as a base to create some really fun lessons for us, not only in geography, but also in history, social and political studies, science, and more! It will be a great companion to our world history studies using The Mystery of History.
We're currently reading through the book of Ruth and the little girls enjoyed looking at the photos and reading about this real life land of Moab. When we imagine Bible stories happening, I think we all just picture a bunch of robed people hanging out in a dry, flat desert. With this gorgeous photo atlas, we can imagine bright blue rivers, lush palm trees, and more!
I love teaching one lesson to the family and then giving assignments to each child, depending on their abilities. I think this is going to be a great resource for that style of teaching. With so much interesting information, I might get caught up reading it myself and refuse to share!
- This is the atlas that I have been looking for to add to my homeschool resources! by Alana on 3/2/2015
When this atlas arrived in the mail I was so excited to open it up and soak in all of the beautiful maps. This atlas not only has beautiful full color maps, it has the journeys taken by important people in the bible, the battles, weather , agricultural, altars, tombs, and pillars of the Promised Land, and so much more. This atlas is full real life pictures from the areas that are shown on the maps so you can get an idea of how the land is land out, and the agriculture in those areas. I use this in teaching in our homeschool, we read devotions and study in our history about the bible, and this atlas really puts a visual on everything we talk about. In the back of the book there is a scripture reference for every book of the bible. It also has all the important dates in a timeline for every book of the bible as well. This is one of our favorite books/resources in our home. My kids love flipping through the pages and seeing all of the maps that they have studied about, but these maps have the biblical references. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this atlas. It is simply one of my favorite books now.
