Watermelon Hemispheres and More Geography Lessons

The last two weeks students in third grade have been teaching enrichment classes on hemispheres, landforms, and more.  Students have come up with inventive ways to share their lessons with their class.  We have had watermelons and orange models of the globes which led to great visualizations and a treat after the lesson!  We have also had students build models to show what they learned about various landforms, a drawing challenge about landforms which led to students taking over a classroom bulletin board to share their work and a game of jeopardy in which students had to work in teams to score points.

As we wrap up these geography skill lessons, our next goal is to plan adventure trips.  It will be fun to see where students decide to travel!
