Student Leaders

This week in third grade enrichment classes students continued to impress me with creative ways to teach geography skills. On Monday students created a scavenger hunt in which students had to use directions to find clues, and in the end build a map. On Wednesday one group had students perform skits to show how different places might farm for food. Another group of student leaders had their class watch a music video to reinforce the location of states and then created a bar graph of where people in our class have visited or lived!

When I began the process of having students teach these lessons, I have to admit that I was nervous about whether or not the content would be conveyed. After three weeks of these classes, that is no longer a I just find myself wishing that I could share what some students are doing in one class with the other classes ---because their ideas are so great!
