Rod & Staff considers their curriculum line a ministry, keeping their prices close to cost, which prevents them from offering discounts to retail bookstores. As a result, we can provide only second-hand Rod & Staff, and can't guarantee we'll get it. We offer here the current retail price of the item for your information, but if our page does not say "Buy Used," we do not have a copy. You can order a new one from Milestone Ministries.

This hardcover textbook is part of the Rod and Staff Understanding God's World Series, and this Grade 4 text covers World Geography. Although it's a texbook, the style uses a refreshing method of teaching geography; from the second chapter, the material is presented in the form of a story. Usually the story is about a child or a family from a certain country or visitors to a country. Each chapter starts with a helpful glossary section. People, geographical boundries, mountains, rivers and other features are covered. There are Five units, covering the different climatic zones in the world, and nine chapters. There are photographs, many in color and some other illustrations. One or more map accompanies each area, and after every chapter there are questions to test understanding, further study and some mapwork. At the back of the book are 10 pages of blackline maps for the mapwork lessons. In the front cover pages is a political map and on and back cover pages is a full color relief map of the world. My son and I enjoyed this book thoroughly. It read more like a fun story book than hard school work. We learned a lot about world geography and were not bored by the text at all. A small amount of history is found in some chapters where the people are discussed, for example, in chapter 6 about the Netherlands, there is information about Menno Simons and the Anabaptists, and we enjoyed these bits of facts, often presented in a bordered text box.
This is real value for money. I rate is an excellent world geography course, and it is perfect for homeschooling as it is non-consumable.
