Hello, I am a social studies teacher at Richards High School. My students are wonderful and hardworking. However, a problem I have is that many of my students have poor skills in geography. The U.S history text I currently have is outdated and has only a map of the United States. I have many interesting ideas for group projects using desk globes. My class could plan global trips in small groups selecting their own destinations and travel routes. My students do well with hands on activities. This would be fun as well as educational. If students were able to plan trips using a globe they would learn the geography of the world as well as how to interpret and read a globe. Furthermore, my students would learn where other countries are located and how the geography of an area shapes the culture and economy of that country. Please consider funding my class. Thank You!!
