I used the Book of Facts (that's the name of that almanac) at the library.fdjoyce wrote:I noticed in the 7th/8th grade supplement directions many references to using the Book of Facts or World Alamanac. Could anyone tell me if I should purchase one or both of these books & if so a recommendation on which one?
try this thread for some online lists that would be the same kind of lists that you'd find in that book to complete the mountain ranges worksheet among other stuff.

I can remember my mom always had some almanac in the house. I use to love looking stuff up in it. but you still might plan a trip to the reference section of your library and ask the reference librarian to give you a tour of various almanacs, encyclopedias, and basics like that. Some libraries have a children's reference section that becomes a home work center.
I think our homeschool kids can do research online, or buying a book, but a special trip to the library to learn what resources exist would be good. Ask them about a good almanac, like Book of Facts, and have your child look in the index for mountains. then find the chart.
