Amazon.comBarnes & NobleIndieBound

Rediscover the World around You!

Did you know that the Himalayas are still growing? That the Antarctica is a desert? That humans survived the last Ice Age? It's hard to know all there is to know about geography and its ever-changing landscape. But with I Used to Know That: Geography you'll be able to update your classroom knowledge and examine both the physical and human aspects of the world in short order. Inside you'll explore . . .

  • Our physical world -- rivers and coasts, plate tectonics, changing climates, the "ring of fire"
  • The human world -- causes of the American dust bowl, population expansion, and industrial growth
  • Charts and maps -- the countries of each continent, capital cities, and populations
  • Geo Gems -- surprising facts about our world

So whether this book becomes a trip down memory lane, a voyage of discovery, or a companion for future crossword puzzle clues, I Used to Know That: Geography offers something for anyone with an interest in our planet and the people who live in it.
