Class 1 will involve a class discussion and slide show about a variety of geographical concepts such as the effect of physical geography on our lives, what the planet looks like, the variety of physical environments around the world, continents and countries and travel. I will introduce students to passports and briefly discuss political boundaries . Finally, students will be invited to color and design their own passports (instructions for creating the passport book will be uploaded to the...
Students will begin to comprehend human-environment interaction. Students will develop empathy for children and animals in other parts of the world. Students will identify locations on a map. Students will differentiate between continents and countries. Students will be introduced to physical environments different from their own. Students will know what passports are and begin to comprehend the impact of political boundaries.
My education degree is in Social Studies and Language Arts. I grew up overseas and have traveled to several continents; I am passionate about helping children know what life is like for others in other parts of the world. I also took a National Geographic course entitled "Mapping as a Visualization and Communication Tool in Your Classroom"; the information I learned directly impacts the content of this course.
If map and passport work is not completed in class, students will be tasked with completing it before the next class.
-Students will need to have a passport (instructions will be posted to the classroom one week prior to class 1). The passport will be made from cardstock or construction paper and several sheets of blank paper. A stapler will be needed for assembly. -Printable maps and passport "stamps" will be provided prior to each class. -Students will need pencils, crayons or markers, scissors and glue.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through class participation.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Some of the books we read will feature characters struggling with hardship due to their physical environments, such as earthquakes or famine. All books are age-appropriate.
