Class Set Of World Atlases

My students need 30 atlases they can use in the classroom every day for geography lessons.

My Students

Understanding our world's geography is the foundation for understanding history and all the social sciences. I want to help my students understand geography by using atlases in my classroom each day. Having a classroom set of atlases will make this possible.

I teach in an economically depressed area in central North Carolina.

My school, like many in my area is underfunded and overcrowded. I teach in a "learning cottage" (read trailer). My students are bright and eager to learn, but often lack the resources at home that are found in more affluent communities. My classes are a mixture of at- and below-grade-level students.

My Project

My plan is to use these atlases daily in a five-minute warm-up activity. They will gain an understanding of how countries are related to each other politically, economically and socially. I believe this will help them put social and historical events in context and gain a deeper understanding of the events of the past and the present, and hopefully make the future a better place for all of us.

Studies have shown that children in the United States have a woefully inadequate understanding of geography.

Some students can't even tell me which ocean borders our state. They don't know what continent the United States is located on. Please help us bridge the gap!
