Geography is introduced indirectly at this level through activities such as exploring a globe ball, singing cultural songs, reading books, and making cultural snacks or celebrating cultural traditions of classmates.
The goal of the geography curriculum at this level is to bring an awareness to children of the physical features of the earth, through presentations of land/water formations and concrete exploration of maps. Also, the curriculum brings an awareness of other cultures around the world through pictures, objects, and stories.
• Study of land and water forms, such as lakes, islands, peninsulas, gulfs, isthmus’, and straits
EXPLORATION OF GLOBES, MAPS, AND FLAGS
• Naming and distinguishing shapes and placement of continents, countries, states, and oceans
• Making of maps and books of flags to encourage repetition and familiarization with the geography materials
• Children/families of the classroom are encouraged to share their own cultural stories and/or experiences with their classmates
Connections between physical and cultural geography are made through pictures, objects, and stories of other people, places, products, plants, animals, homes, clothing, transportation, arts, and crafts.
