Excerpt from Elements of Geography Plan. This book is planned to needs of schools that lose many of their pupils after one or two years of geography study. It is best suited to the fourth and fifth, or to the fifth and sixth, grades or years, and leads directly to the larger geography. Pages 1 to 114 comprise a brief primary course. People. The central thought is Man in his relations to the earth. Pupils are led to the homes of the races. Note in the Index the references under People. United States. Every pupil should know a great deal about his own country, its physical features, climate, products, industries, commerce, states, cities, etc. More than a fourth of this book is devoted to the United States. See pages 58 to 79, and 115 to 140 inclusive. Commerce. Special maps and lessons are given on products and related industries leading to commerce. These are treated in their relations to climate and natural features. More stress than usual is laid on this subject, because of its influence on national life. Pictures. Nearly all the pictures were engraved directly from photographs and are true to nature. They present typical forms and supplement the text.
