Students Engage in Map Making
My students need materials for hands on map making. They will use paper and colored pencils to create 2 dimensional maps and clay to make 3 dimensional maps.
Hands on learning is the way to go! Learning about your state while sitting in a desk reading a text book or completing a worksheet is NOT always appropriate for learners. Engagement is the key!
Our school is an under performing Title 1 school striving to improve.
Our students have made great gains in the past few years and love to learn. Students need memorable ways to learn, not wrote memorization. Our students are often lacking the materials for these projects.
Students need prior knowledge and visual cues to help them learn. Our Washington state unit will be more effective if students have a good grasp of the state's physical features before they can really dig into the agricultural, economic and historical features. Students will be creating a 2 dimensional maps with paper and colored pencils and also a relief type map with clay. I have included materials to help them keep the project organized.
Students remember these types of projects well into the future.
I believe that they will gain more knowledge and retain it. Reluctant learners and much more likely to be engaged in learning with hands on projects. This project should help engage all the learners in the classroom.
