Bridging the Summer Gap with Maps101

Bridging the Summer Gap with Maps101

Dear Educator,

While students (and teachers) enjoy the time off from school that summer brings, it can also cause students’ knowledge to slip and slide (which is not as much fun as the old-school, outdoor summer toy), creating a challenge for the upcoming school year. This means the start of the new year must make up that gap with review and reinforcement—AND re-engagement by students who must settle down to focus on learning. 

Our content supports your efforts to bridge this summer gap through a wide variety of types of content, including: engaging GeoInquiries and GeoQuests, full text and visual Lesson Maps, interactive Field Trips, GNN articles, maps, and much more. Let’s take a look at some of the content you can use to start planning for the next school year.

Also, check out our Summer of Where landing page to discover even more content to inspire you as you plan how to bridge the learning gap that comes with the inevitable summer slide.

GeoQuest

Each state has a GeoQuest for that state’s geographic information. Students will focus on the geographic features and resources of their state to determine the quality of life there. This is a great reentry to the school year as students focus on where they are and the features of place.

Lesson Map

At the start of the year, world history will focus on the earliest river valley civilizations in Mesopotamia. Our exclusive Lesson Map has all of the information your students need to cover this vital topic. The teacher edition has a rich variety of leveled activities for you to choose from, to further engage student understanding.

Field Trip

For elementary students, use this interactive Field Trip with images, text, and a map that explains caterpillars, the pupal stage, metamorphosis, what monarchs eat, migration, and more. Most students are excited about butterflies, and this enriching Field Trip will show them all they want to know.
