Memoria Press has been “Saving Western Civilization One Student At a Time” since 1994.  Offering homeschooled students top-quality classical materials in all subjects, Memoria Press has become a staple in homeschool schoolrooms everywhere.  For this review, Memoria Press offered the Review Crew two products from which to choose: Prima Latina and Geography I.

Geography I, for grades 4-8, costs $48.00, and includes the following:

  • Geography I Text
  • Geography I Workbook
  • Geography I Teacher Guide
  • United States Review Student
  • United States Review Key, Quizzes, and Tests
This curriculum covers the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe, or the territory that comprised the ancient Roman Empire.  Each country in these regions is presented in two contexts: its present incarnation and its former, as it existed in ancient times.  For each country, students read about the country’s ancient and modern histories and then complete a workbook page on which they note the country’s capital, its ancient name, some fun facts, and, finally, label relevant places on its map.The United States Review is intended to ensure that students retain what they learned previously with Memoria Press’ States and Capitals course.  It is comprised of states and regions maps and captials quizzes and can be used in a variety of ways to supplement any geography curriculum.
Memoria Press offers many more classical curriculum products, including grade core packages.  The products the Crew reviewed, as well as all of their other products, can be viewed and purchased on their website.

  1. […] The United States is a basic review of what students learned if they used Memoria Press’ States and Capitals set.  Since only my oldest has had U.S. geography at this point I used these books for her to review the United States – and the book is broken up into regions so it makes review and learning easier to retain before putting it all together in the big picture.  The whole Geography I set sells for $48.00 and you can buy extra workbooks separately for $11.95 or $5.00 for the United States workbook, if you need them for other children.  My children and I enjoyed our study of geography using the Geography I set and best of all it fit really well with our current history curricula so it streamlined great.  If you’d like to see what other parents had to say hop over to visit the Schoolhouse Review Crew blog.
