"Mapping the World with Art" is a blend of history, geography, and art for ages 10 and up. This curriculum is actually three books in one. The first section is a history text with 30 2-page history lessons that tell the story of cartography from ancient Mesopotamia up through the discovery of Antarctica in the late 1800s. The second section of the book provides step-by-step drawing lessons for each of the history lessons. After you learn some history, you draw the primary place you read about. The last section provides extra activities that a parent or teacher may want to use with their student(s). These activities include review worksheets, group games, historical crafts, art projects, edible crafts, and links to online videos. The final project is drawing a map of the world from memory.
