Glorious Geography

Help me give my students a way to know global geography. My students need geography coloring books, composition books, crayons, a map of the world, and colorful pins to mark destinations.

My Students

Our students come from many diverse backgrounds. 100% of our students receive a free lunch. We attend an inner city school, where more than half of the students commute for the education we provide. We have healthy foods and a garden, and we speak seven different languages at home.

Our school is a bright, happy place where a university education is our goal!

Students learn in classrooms where experience solidifies the curriculum! Our walls are covered in student innovation and creativity! Students are always encouraged to voice their opinion!

My Project

This year 28 out of my 30 students do not speak English at home. It is time to relish in our diversity! We have post cards coming in each month from friends and family, to plot on the world map.

We are learning geography from our mail!

The students then plot the post cards on our world map. Students in the hall are also learning their geography from our displays!

We need a large map of the world. We need pins and flags to mark the post cards' locations on our new map. We also need Geography composition books, books of maps from around the world, and beautiful color crayons to decorate the maps and our Geography journals. Our world geography knowledge will grow with each post card that arrives!
