Help me give my students globes. We need one for each table group.
My sixth-grade students are energetic, inquisitive, and passionate! They enjoy learning about the ancient world, especially different cultures and ways of life. In a typical school year, we learn about prehistoric times, Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China, Greece, and Rome.
My students thrive when they are given the opportunity to have a "hands-on" experience.
During our Mesopotamia unit, we created cuneiform tablets using clay and toothpicks. We will paint maps of Egypt as we discuss how geography impacts our lives. The more "hands-on" we are, the more engaged they are and the more connections they can make.
My students are in need of globes in our Ancient World Studies classroom! I would like a class set of globes, one for each table group, which will be used in many ways throughout the school year.
In the course of a single school year, we "travel" from Mesopotamia to Egypt, India, China, Greece, and Rome!
Hands-on learners need a way to picture the areas of the world we are learning about. We will use these globes during our in-depth study of the five aspects of geography and at the start of each new unit. We will use them for review games, and as a way for students to picture the areas of the world and how they relate to their own location in Portland, Oregon.
