Around the World in 180 Days was the first course published by Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc. that was not one of Dr. Wile's courses. Apologia discovered this curriculum at the Indiana Association of Home Educators convention and found it so innovative that they decided it must be published.

The course teaches geography and history on a continent-by-continent basis. The student learns about the major countries on all seven continents, as well as the basics of the continent's history, geography, religion, culture and even the current events going on in the area.

This is not a textbook. It is a series of questions that the student must research in order to answer. Plenty of resources (available in most public libraries) are listed to help the student in his or her research, and the teacher edition has all of the answers. Thus, even if the student cannot find the answer, you will not be lost. The pages in the student book are all three-hole punched and perforated so that the student can fill out the worksheets and compile a notebook which will document his or her work.

The great thing about this curriculum is that it written with a multilevel approach! There are questions for students of all levels, and those levels are clearly marked in the curriculum. As a result, the youngsters can do some of the research, the older students can do different research, and the oldest students can answer the most challenging questions. This is truly a curriculum that your whole family can study at once!

The 2-volume set includes:

  • Softbound Teacher Edition, which contains all illustrations and diagrams
  • Student workbook with perforated pages
