Paths of Exploration

by Debbie Strayer & Linda Fowler


Quick Overview

Students will complete a broad range of mapping activities including spherical globe work, blank outline flat mapping, and reading of regular maps. Language arts activities cover word endings, synonyms, narration, root words, context clues, and much more. The various geography and science activities provide hands-on fun as students make salt dough maps, use timers, and perform experiments--all while connecting the information to the other subject areas seamlessly. The copywork was low stress while yielding results, and we didn't dread it as we often have in the past. Each assignment was an integral part of the overall lesson and helped with a greater understanding of the material; even my ten-year-old didn't mind doing the work. Discussions were wonderful as I saw my children truly engaged in the stories, caring about the quality of material put into their notebooks, and looking forward to upcoming reading assignments. The art activities, particularly the grid map activities, were a huge hit and helped extend my son's desire for additional art assignments. The extra resource materials, although costly, were wonderful additions to our home library and are already being used in other educational activities outside of this curriculum.
