“I can’t believe how much I just learned!” That was one mom’s response after observing a single class session of Trick Geography. Trick Geography: USA Student Book (Teacher Guide sold separately) is a simple, yet powerful geography curriculum which routinely moves students from geographic illiteracy to command of US states, capitals, and major bodies of water, mountains, deserts, and plains in just a few weeks. And all with ease and high retention! How does it work? New York looks like a stork, so we trace the dots of a stork drawn inside the state’s border. The capital is Albany, so we circle all the bunnies (Albany) that are running away from the stork (New York). It's THAT easy! Physical features are taught using simple connections. "The snake (Snake River) is coiled around Ida’s hoe (Idaho)." Delightful graphics, phonetic connectors, dot-to-dots, and fill-in-the-blanks facilitate multiple learning styles and make the process more like a game than a curriculum. Trick Geography is easy enough for elementary students yet sophisticated enough for the high schooler and adult. It is ideal for home or school settings. Teachers appreciate the simple instructions which require virtually no prep time or learning curve and which give students the option of going through the program on their own. Evaluation is a cinch with matching tests which are included. Recommended for ages 8 to adult. 56 pages. Teacher guide required.
