Map Trek: The Complete Collection CD Atlas and Outline Maps of World History
Have you ever been teaching a history lesson when one of your children pipes up with a
question. "Mom, is Carthage a city in Oregon or some other country?" Oh dear, you think to yourself and then
calmly explain, "Honey, first of all, Oregon is a state, not a country. And Carthage no longer exists, but I
think it was located on the northern tip of Africa across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy." After receiving two
or more questions along this vein, you realize that you need some better resources.
Actually, you only need ONE!
Map Trek is an atlas plus historical outline maps that allow you to teach geography alongside
history. This is a resource that any homeschool parent can use with brilliant success, even if you don't
remember a thing from your history or geography classes in public school.
Grab your children by the hand. It's time to explore our
world throughout history. Let's take a map trek! This NEW, Hot-Off-The-Press CD-ROM contains
all four Map Trek map sets - Ancient World, Medieval World, New World and Modern World - plus
includes three additional bonuses, including complete world and continent maps, along with drawing grids to

tremendously. Here are a few samples below from the Modern World portion of the CD. Go ahead and

2. An unlabeled student map for your child to color in and label. Notice a few key features on this map. There
is a slight color shading on the ocean/water areas to help your child determine which parts of the map are land and
which are water. BUT the shading is minimal so as to not interfere with his creative coloring process OR to use
much ink when printing from your printer. Feel free to save a copy of this sample map to your computer and print
one out to see for yourself. Right click and "save image as" to save to your computer.
3. Lesson Plans to help you know what to assign to each of your children at their various stages of learning.
There are lesson plans included for all 50+ outline maps and are broken down into 3 levels - Level A (grades 1-4),
Level B (grades 5-8) and Level C (grades 9-12).
