The 4th graders took a nice tour of the world during our Geography unit. We looked at lots of maps, atlases and globes to explore the continents, oceans, countries, states and towns around us. Much of our time was spent teaching students the parts of a map and how to read them. Students created maps of our school yard and of their own yards to practice using the various features on a map. Students also created state posters where each of them had to choose one state to research and then create a poster and put all of the information they gathered onto it.
