Student Led Geography Lessons Continue

In third grade enrichment students are working through our geography skills lessons with student led activities. This week one group had students explore using Google Earth to understand the difference between maps and satellite images. In another class students developed a game in which they challenged students to travel around a Vermont state map using both cardinal and intermediate directions. In another class students put on a puppet show to teach the class about their location in the world (starting with their town and then working all the way up to the Earth!)

Students are using creativity to develop their lesson plans and their classmates are engaged and supportive of their efforts.
