New Geography Book for Homeschool Curriculums

Coming shortly from Bruce Jones is our latest book in association with Aquinas Learning Program, Geography, The Americas & The 50 US States. Learn the basic geographic layout of the Americas and each of the 50 US states.  Each outline map is presented in two ways, one page has the map with corresponding cities, capitals and physical features and the next page has the blank outline without any of the information.  Students can trace the outlines of the map, study and highlight cities, capitals and features, and finally review by filling in the pertinent data on the blank map.  This book corresponds with the Cycle 3 Geography curriculum for the Aquinas Learning Program.

Black outline maps included in the book are: World Robinson Projection, North America with countries, Canada with provinces, United State of America with states, Central America with countries and South America with countries. The book includes all 50 US states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming in the order they entered the union.

Also included are US territories: Guam, Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands.
