What in the World?

My students need globes and maps to see just how BIG the world really is!

My Students

Our students don't get much exposure to the world beyond their rural community. Showing them different continents and countries--and their proximity to our own country, is an exciting opportunity for them to make connections in geography and in culture!

Our students are energetic, passionate, bright-eyed children living in a very impoverished, very rural community.

Almost 100% of them receive free or reduced lunches. Many of them have patchwork families or backgrounds, however they feel a sense of pride and community within our school walls.

My Project

We have a world map in my classroom, and I use it regularly as I teach US History to 10th and 11th grade. There are so many moments when a student suddenly says "Oh! I didn't know that was there..." or "Oh! I didn't know Russia was so close to Alaska..." and other exciting, exclamatory discoveries! I revel in these moments of connections for my students, and believe that more exposure through the medium of maps will be invaluable to their ability to realize the magnificence of the world!

This project is all about exposure for kids.

Sometimes they feel so trapped within their community or within their circumstances--and we must show them how much there is in the world to explore! This project is a stepping stone for a Washington, DC trip that I am currently putting together for our school: a lofty goal with students' hearts wholly invested--and funding this project is the first step!
