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 help your children really become familiar with the countries of our world.
