I'm thinking of using it for next year, 5th grade.

Can someone look at this pdf file? It looks like you order each state workbook for $13. Or you can do all fifty states for $32.  Is that right?

No, it looks like two separate curricula to me.  I could be wrong, though - I'm a bit out of it today from starting a new pain med! 

Okay, I looked over their home page.  It states this:

"We offer a separate course on EVERY state, and also a course that covers all 50 states." 

So the $13 is the former and the $32 is the latter.

I would look into The Geography Matters curricula before you order this:

Hey Char,

You might want to check out Geo-scribe.  That's what I ended up using with mine and I let them research the states. Then we did the junior ranger badges to let them know about the state parks.  I know this is totally off topic!! :-)

Thanks JC, I thought they were probably separate and the 50 states version is likely very condensed.

No problem Stacey. I've found out about some really great books/curriculum by people jumping in with ideas. Thanks!
