Secular Middle School Geography Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm trying to brainstorm some secular middle school geography curriculum options. Do you know of any?

Build Your Library's 7th and 8th grade years are human geography focused. Even if you don't do the program, the book lists are excellent.

Pearson has one.  It's a green book, we are using it right now.  You can get a workbook to go with it, buy we are just reading and coloring and marking printed off maps.  BYL has some great boojs to go along with it.

Memoria Press Geograhy series. There are 3 books in the series meant to be used in sequence. A United States set is available and intended to be used first. You can skip it and the US reivews in the link below.

Following because I've been looking for a good middle school geography.

Looking at the samples Memorial Press doesn't look secular.

Could you provide a link?  I did a search but not sure which it is.

Memoria Press isn’t secular, for sure. However, they do have their Charter site which is where I get most of my MP materials from and they seem to have done a good job of removing the religious content. I have not, however, used their Charter edition geography books yet but they’re on the plan for next year. 

The Geography 1 set (even from the Charter school line) still seems to have more religious stuff than I’d like - but levels 2 and 3 seem much better and look like they’ll be a solid geography curriculum (which we’ve not really ever done in a structured way because I could never find anything I liked).

Worth taking a peek - it might still be not secular enough but I thought I’d throw it out there.

We did/do the Geography Coloring Book starting in middle school alongside history studies. There is so much in these books. We've kept them up all through high school.

We're using Visualize World Geography this year and have not seen any religious content in it. It's video-based. (I bought someone's old DVDs because it's only being sold as an online service now.)

I believe you can buy extra workbooks at Christian book.   We just read the text, I've got other mapwork, plus Material World and some other geography books, so we use a variety of resources.  I lije Usborne book of World Religions, and they have an animal book that's organized by continent.   It has a tiger on tge front, I believe.
