WonderMaps – Review

wondermaps

Bright Ideas Press offers History, Geography and Science homeschool curricula.  I received their WonderMaps computer program in exchange for an honest review 🙂

WonderMaps is wonder-ful! We love maps and globes in this house already, and WonderMaps makes it so easy to incorporate Geography into what you are learning in your homeschool.  Over 350 maps that you can customize!  AND we were able to install it on TWO computers.

With just a click of the mouse, you can select or de-select:

  • historical or modern-day maps
  • outline, reference, political, or topographical maps
  • black-and-white or color maps
  • features including:  names, borders, rivers, cities, physical features, and graticules

You can print out maps of your choice, ready for your student to label and colour.

Of particular interest for our family are the World Wars maps, as my husband and son love to play board games together set during these wars, and love to learn about them.

Historical maps are divided up into the Classical method of homeschooling four-year cycle. These have been especially handy in our classically-minded homeschool. Also included are Biblical maps.

 

AND if you happen to use The Mystery of History or All American History curricula, EVERY map you need for each book is included in this program.

 

We will be using these maps in our homeschool all the way through high school, for many years to come!

 

To learn more about how WonderMaps works, you can view the video Youtube tutorial:

 

WonderMaps is just $49.95 US for either the download only OR the download/CD combo (plus shipping) and is available for Mac or PC (just be sure that your Adobe Reader is at least version 9.1).


 Love, Luck &

Laughter,
