Students will be doing a variety of learning activities throughout the year. They will be doing mini-units for each continent to learn about them and work on map skills. We will be reading children's literature to learn about the Colonial Times, Early Exploration, and Revolutionary Times.
Students will be working on map skills to prepare for using maps to complete continent packets. They will be learning how to read maps using map keys, compass rose, grids of longitude and latitude, how to identify different landforms, etc. Look for the continent packets to be coming home each month as they learn about each of the seven continents.
