An Award-Winning Product at an Award-Winning Price!

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to present a GroupBuy exclusive for the award-winning geography curriculum classic, Mapping the World By Heart, from FableVision Learning.

When it was first released, Mapping the World by Heart was awarded the "Breaking the Mold" Award by the U.S. Department of Education. It has been through nine complete revisions, and is updated regularly.

Fun, Memorable Geography

If you placed blank sheets of paper in front of your students, could they draw a detailed map of the entire world? It may seem hard to believe, but after exploring the innovative Mapping the World by Heart curriculum, students can have a comprehensive knowledge of geography that allows them to map the world entirely from memory!

Designed for grades 5-12, Mapping the World by Heart includes a set of maps and a comprehensive teacher's guide that makes it easy to integrate lessons and activities into any class's existing curriculum. Combining memorization with the real use of knowledge, practice, mnemonics, large and small group activities, and games, Mapping the World by Heart seeks to inspire students to study -- and love -- geography.

  • Teaches students to draw -- entirely from memory -- detailed world maps including the names, borders, mountain ranges, rivers, and major cities of more than 190 countries.
  • Can get students excited about geography and encourages them to think globally.
  • Promotes positive interactions and collaboration, both in small group work and as a class.
  • Provides flexible lessons you can easily integrate into your existing curriculum.
  • Gives students a constructive goal to work towards all year long.

Mapping the World By Heart is a fantastic product! My son had to leave traditional school due to a medical problem. It was not until I started homeschooling that I realized he had virtually no knowledge of geography. I believe that you can't find your way in the world if you don't know where you are in the world. This program not only teaches the vital geography skills that I learned during my Catholic school upbringing, but it also adds new dimension to the old school memorization. The activities are challenging, fun and make an impact! ...(more)

I have only gotten through the first 3-4 lessons, but am very happy so far. This appears to be very thorough! I am also using it with 5 different ages and it is working well. Often in homeschool, we don't have time to delve into our geography with everything else on our plate. With this program, we have geography lessons every Saturday and the kids are loving it!

This is a GREAT program-so much fun because it includes a lot of hands-on activities, which my 10 year old loves. The challenge of eventually being able to map the world from memory is very exciting to her. The program has some nice flexibility to it, so it can be realistically altered for individual use without compromising the learning experience.
It is a fun and engaging way to teach geography. I know this can be a dry experience for some kids, so this is a fun way to learn it. Very fun when paired with the Stack the Countries app, which ...(more)

We have only just begun to explore Mapping The World By Heart. It is broken down into easy to understand and very flexible lessons. I am looking forward to making this a family adventure!

I have just started using this program with my 12-year-old homeschooling son. We both have enjoyed the "appetizers" and are excited to start on the "entrees". The appetizers were short lessons that really taught a great deal about mapping. We are about to start Mapping the U.S. I am excited about this since this program teaches more than I ever learned in school. I am so happy that this program is available.

With this program, you have suggestions for teaching and the tools to do it. I find, so far, that I like to incorporate other m...(more)

I remember this product from 8th grade when the product first came out over 20 years ago! Our class were test subjects, either for our district or the company, not sure which. I still have the map I drew for the final project! I love the layout of this as you can pick and choose what you want to do. There's no set way you have to do it, which is how we like to do things, our way:) For us, it will take us over a year to do as we are going more in depth and starting off by working on the individual US states first. There's a lot of good inf...(more)

I love Mapping the World By Heart! I am also teaching the Mapping the US by Heart section to teach 11 kids in our homeschool group. I would recommend this to anyone that wants their child (or themselves) to learn geography. We have lots of fun with it, while learning quickly and easily.
Christina Cronauer, Co-op Member
We really like Mapping the World By Heart. Our Curriculum requires that the student be able to draw and label the World by the time they graduate. This will make that task so much easier. This is built into our memory work each week. My daughter (9) loves the different shapes or figures that are in the maps. She shares these with the other children. We will use this all the way through High School. I share this each time it comes up in conversation. It is a wonderful addition to our World History.

What a great resource! We are not doing the whole program right now, but we're using the maps (to copy), as well as several of the curriculum ideas. Well worth the purchase!!

I purchased Mapping the World by Heart for my 11, 9, and 7 year old children. I love the concept of them being able to draw the world by heart. This year we have decided to focus on the section that leads you through drawing the US by heart. We have really enjoyed it and are so excited to reach our goal. I love this product but I think that's it important to note that it does not teach you how to draw the world. It does give you pointers and guides that help you figure out how to teach it to your family along with other information about e...(more)
