STUDENT ACTIVITIES USING
THIS WEEK’S MAPS101 CONTENT:
Listing Use the “My Country” Field Trip to have students identify the topics discussed. They should create a list of the titles of each slide in the bottom channel. Explain to students that these titles help explain what they will be learning about. Then, conduct a classroom vote of which topic from the list students are most interested in. Encourage students to draw an example of their favorite topic. Display student drawings in class.
Illustrating Have students review the My Neighborhood map. Using it as an example, have students draw maps of the neighborhood where your school is located. If necessary and able, take a quick outdoor walk around the school and encourage students to point out landmarks to include on their maps.
Identifying After reading the “Community Helpers” GNN Junior article, encourage students to identify other community helpers in your area. Make sure students understand what jobs these people do and how they benefit the community.
