We are currently studying American History, and so I wanted to introduce a study of the states to our lesson time. Memoria Press’ The United States curriculum has been a great supplement to our studies.
Once a week, my eight-year-old son would sit down to do a lesson in the workbook. After completing the lesson, he’d bring it to me, and I would check the answers in the Teacher’s Manual. This curriculum is basic and to-the-point, but effective.
▪Pros: The curriculum can be done independently, which has been hugely helpful lately. It also has a bit of hands-on in the form of coloring, which my son enjoys.
▪Cons: Other than the fact that I wish there was more color and visual appeal, there aren’t many negatives. This curriculum is strictly meant to teach about the states, capitals, etc., and it accomplishes that very well.
Conclusion: I plan to continue using The United States and will follow it up with States and Capitals once finished.
