CLASSROOM – GEOGRAPHY
Geography is all around us, in the classroom, our homes, our cities, everywhere! Geography Awareness Week reminds us of all the ways geography impacts our lives. It can create weather patterns or traffic patterns. Geography influences our culture and habits. This week, we take a look at how geography close to us impacts our lives.
HOW TO OBSERVE in the CLASSROOM – Geography
Download and print this week’s projects to explore geography. You can also follow the suggestions below to help your students explore the days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!
Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:
1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
