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.

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)

Love it! I am forever amazed by the progress my son is making using Mapping the World by Heart. He has a much better understanding of the location of remote countries, and even some smaller details like rivers, mountains, etc. My son enjoys the tasks and seems to learn and grow with each lesson.
Mrs. E. Saunders, Co-op Member
I've enjoyed how useful the manual is. Suggestions make it easy to tailor for the different settings in which I teach. For middle school co-op, I used the intro hands on lessons, like the grapefruit lesson that shows why there are distortions in 2D maps that represent our 3D world of longitude and latitude. Materials helped me bring home ideas to new geography students AND challenge those classroom experts. I plan to use the entire manual extensively with my own high school children.
Robbye, Co-op Member
Although we are not very far into the lessons, I love the scope and sequence of this curriculum. The children are not intimated by the lesson requirements and I find preparation time is minimal. We enjoy this subject.
Shannon, Co-op Member
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 love this way of learning geography. It doesn't feel like heavy or hard school work at all and my children (ages 15-9) look forward to our geography time. My younger children cannot wait for their turn someday!
Dionne S, Co-op Member
I am truly delighted which this program. It written in a way that gives you both structure and freedom to help you either use their schedule, or go deeper if you like, with lots of tips and hints to help you get your creative thinking going.
Crystal Burnett, Co-op Member
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!!
B Dicks, Co-op Member
My children both really enjoy the Mapping the World By Heart Curriculum. We have found it is easy to dip in and out of and to use in a very individual way. My older son (aged 11) has followed every instruction and is now making maps to scale on his own. My younger son (aged 8) loves tracing the maps and then colouring in the countries.

Both children know all the countries in the world and where they are, and in order of size. We are working at the moment on studying the individual countries.

My children have been using this curricul...(more)
Rebecca Hunter, Co-op Member
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!
