A New Geography Resource

After searching for the perfect basic U.S. Geography curriculum and not finding it, I've put together my own, using pictures found from DLTK printables, (that site is awesome!) and maps from Enchanted Learning (I'm a member of that one). Please don't sell or share.  Use for your own family's use and link back here when sharing.  Show some love to the folks over at Enchanted Learning and DLTK printables as well! :)

God Bless,

Just click on the pic!

Bummer.... I haven't been able to download it yet... I even signed up for the place you're using to have us download. Perhaps it'll work later... Looks nice, though :)

Mary said...

You need to click on the blue download link on the page at 4share. Then wait the 20 seconds until the download link appears. Then it'll let you download it. Let me know if that works.

It's not letting me download either. I've d/l from 4shared many times without a problem. Not sure why it isn't working.

Erin I said...

thanks! Downloaded it and can't wait to start printing and planning!

Mary said...

Hmm, not sure why either?!
Keep trying maybe. I'll try and see if there is another site I can link to.

Mary said...

Great! Enjoy. :)

This is VERY well done. I too had trouble when putting together a U.S.A. State Unit and struggled to piece meal things together. I especially love the bird and flower pages for each state! Thank you for creating this and sharing it with everyone!

Enchanted Homeschooling Mom,

Thanks again! Anytime I think something up that can help someone else, I love sharing it.

God Bless,

I opened the file and because it is such a large file and I need two copies for my boys I was trying to save it to a disc so I can take it somewhere to print and bind. It didn't give me that option. I was wondering did you set it up like that or is maybe something wrong.

Mary said...


I'm not sure about how they have it set up, I have no control other than uploading the file to the server. Can you save the file to your computer and then to a disk? Other than that do you have a usb stick you can save it to. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

Chandra Chinnis said...

Thank you but it doesn't seem to be letting me save at all. I will figure something out hopefully. It is a great file!!!!

Mary said...


Please send me an email and I will email you the file directly.

God Bless,

I am printing my first 2 states out as I type. I will be a newbie to homeschooling starting this Monday. I am homeschooling my youngest son for Kinder. I am excited about the journey and also nervous. I have three children, the other 2 are 13 and 10. And this will be my first time embarking on this type of adventure. I plan on introducing 2 states a week. Can't wait! Thanks so much!

Mary said...


Welcome to homeschooling! You're in for the ride of your life, but I guarantee that you will not regret taking this job on. It's the most rewarding, fun and fulfilling job that I could ever hope to have. Enjoy the file have fun!

God Bless,

Thank you so much for sharing your talents, Mary! I am thrilled to find your new blog...because I have really missed your creativity!

Mary said...


Aww, thanks so much! I have so many ideas that I need to "give birth to" so to speak. I'm glad you found me again.

God Bless,

Nicole said...

This is exactly what I've been searching for! How WONDERFUL! Thank you for sharing! Can't wait to get started!

niki said...

Thanks for sharing. I too am on a search for the perfect US curriculum. This will helps me tons!

Mary said...


I am always on the search for the perfect curriculum. Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands. I do that often.

The Traveling the States set is wonderful! Thank you so much for taking the time to prepare such a detailed document and then offering it to others for free!

The Young Family said...

Thanks so much for a wonderful set! We are preparing for a major road trip (17 states!) so have been printing busily to get our notebooks ready! I came across a slight problem though...on the South Dakota map page, it shows the map for South Carolina! Oops! Is there any way you can correct that? I tried looking up the maps on Enchanted Learning but the answers maps are only available by subscription, which I don't have. Thanks again for a great learning tool!

Kira said...

Can I just say, this is EXACTLY what I've been looking for to make my life easier? I'm doing a state study with my 5th grader this year and we've been using a combo of books and the internet, but it was tedious and not very cohesive. THANK YOU so much for your incredible generosity and hard work to create this file. I'm thrilled to have found it. You did an amazing job. Thank you!
