Rated 4 out of 5 by j9nkc Good overview of cultures
We switched to BJU Geography after years of Sonlight when my freshman wanted more of a textbook curriculum. I was skeptical but he loved the curriculum and we'll continue with BJU for his high school years. Good overall content of the cultures of the world without too much emphasis on missions. Having the page numbers for the answers on the tests was a big time-saver for me. I would gladly recommend this curriculum for those whose learning style needs the textbook format.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeninNH Delighted with this geography curriculum!
In choosing a geography curriculum for our homeschool this year I reviewed Runkle's Geography, Around the World in 180 Days (Apologia), and BJUP Cultural Geography. There was no comparison...the BJUP Cultural Geography was hands down the best by far. It is thorough in detailing the physical hallmarks of each region as well as covering both the local cultural and historical impact that has helped to shape that culture. Most importantly it draws the student in to viewing cultural differences through the lens of Scripture and challenging them to think critically about the impacts of missions in various areas. In addition to those more important features it is also colorful and interesting as a text, something that is a draw for the student. Thank you for such a great resource for our homeschool!
