Learning geography is an adventure, and it's much more than memorizing facts! The authors who brought you Galloping the Globe, now offer its U.S. counterpart, Cantering the Country.

This unit study course teaches a wide range of academic and spiritual disciplines using the geography of the U.S.A. as a starting point. You don't have to put aside one subject to make time for another. They're all connected!

This comprehensive unit study can be used for all children grades 1-6 and includes:

  • Geography - Learn basic geography of each state through terms, mapping, and more.
  • Science - Learn science by studying the state flowers, trees, animals, and birds.
  • Language Arts - Cover language arts as you read literature set in each state.
  • Character - Build character by learning to apply the principles of the preamble of the constitution of each state
  • History - Bring history alive with the stories of famous people, founding fathers and Native American groups from around the country.

At the end of the course, your students will have heads bursting with knowledge and notebooks that they personally created, chock-full of wonderful information and fun memories.

Includes a CD-ROM with over 150 printable, reproducible outline maps, word searches, crossword puzzles, and other fun puzzles relevant to each state. (This CD-ROM is also available separately—click here for more details.)

Dust off your atlas and get ready to explore America!
