Evan-Moor Educational Publishers Daily Geography Practice, Grade 3

Your students will be the exception to the perception of geography-illiterate Americans! Thirty-six units present various geographical concepts with plenty of opportunities for real-life reinforcement examples. A teacher page introduces the week's lesson and includes notes on the skills taught, background information, defined vocabulary words and an answer key. Map pages illustrate the skills emphasized and may be reproduced for answer questions; two geography questions are given for each day of the week, progressing in difficulty from Monday to Friday. Challenge questions are included, and often need to be independently researched.

Looking at the world in spatial terms, places and regions, physical systems, human systems, environment and society and uses of geography, this grade 3 book focuses in on how people and culture relate to the earth. A glossary and 36 ready-made transparencies are included. 160 reproducible pages, softcover. Grade 3.

The concept is simple; introduce a type of map rotating the area of the map. The private school and public school in my area went over one map each year and checked off geography for the year. Friends said their children hated the typical 4th grade "U.S. Regions" program. Since we had used the Daily Geography program, our child already knew the types of maps and had introductions to the states, so studying the regions could truly build on the commonalities between the regions' states and was more fun (definitely without the frustration and boredom). At first we would do all 5 daily lessons on one map in one day. But later realized that splitting into several days gave our child an opportunity to see the map several times - this actually helped a lot with retention and we wish we had done that from the beginning (hard to resist but leads to better academic success).
