Our Trip Around The World Needs Resources! Help Us Take Off!

My students need atlases to help them learn about other cultures and countries, and travel the world with me without leaving home!

My Students

The world is at your fingertips with a keyboard, I-Pad or smart phone in your hands...But why not books? That new book smell and feel, being the first to read a brand new book! My students need to learn that there is more than one way to find information and it doesn't always have to be on line.

My students are eager to find out about the world around them.

Some have traveled to other states and countries, others have not left the state of NJ. Talk to them about traveling and eyes light up! I am sometimes not able to start my lesson for the day without at least four or five stories about who has traveled and where they went! They are so excited and ready to explore the world with me in any way they can. We are a K-2 suburban school with a somewhat varied cultural background. The children embrace the similarities and differences we all have.

My Project

We are currently borrowing almost all of the atlases and travel books from the school's library with the media specialist's blessing! I, however, do not wish to tie up the resources all year as we make our way around the world. With atlases, students will be able to work cooperatively in small groups as well as individually, rather than 17-21 students sharing 3 atlases and one map. I want to inspire the children to embrace the similarities and differences that make each culture and country special and unique.

I hope to impart at the very least an interest in travel if not a full blown case of love at first flight!

I hope to spark that interest in travel in my students and encourage them to learn anything and everything about other cultures and countries, both inside and outside my classroom. I want them to start conversations with parents, family, and friends about travel and keep the dialog going long after they leave my room.
