United States Geography: An Atlas for All!

My students need a classroom set of student atlases to utilize as we explore the geography of the United States.

My Students

I teach 7th grade United States Geography in rural Nevada. We are a Title I school, with many of our students' families being below the poverty level. I see roughly 160 students each day, and do my best to show them the beauty that lies within our own country.

Despite the challenges that my students face, they are inquisitive and eager to learn about what lies beyond our small town.

In our class we do a great deal of hands-on activities, as I try to bring Social Studies to life for my students. Some of my students have not had the opportunity to travel outside of our town, so my class is able to provide a window into different locations as we journey through our curriculum.

My Project

The use of maps is a daily occurrence in my U.S. Geography class. However, our classroom only has a couple of out of date road atlases for students to use. The goal of this project is to get a current atlas in the hands of every student in my classroom.

An atlas in a Geography classroom is an invaluable resource.

Although technology is occasionally available, not all of my students are able to afford personal devices. The use of school technology is also inconsistent because it must be shared throughout the entire school.

By donating to this project, you will be helping us fill in the gaps in the availability of classroom resources. You will also be helping my students to expand their view of our country, and aid in the mastery of our Geography standards this year and for many years to come.
