Where in the World Are We? Help Us Figure It Out with Maps!

My students need an updated classroom wall map and globe for our geography lessons. Our current classroom maps are over 12 years old and are extremely outdated and in very poor condition.

I am currently teaching 4th grade at an inner city school that is in a high poverty area. Our school is listed as low performing,non-improving according to the No Child Left Behind ratings.

My class is beginning a study of geography. Unfortunately, the maps in our classroom are well over 12 years old and in disrepair. Despite these challenges, my students are very excited to learn and share what they know about the world and the different places in it.

In order to teach my students about the world in which we live, it is imperative that I have up to date materials. My students deserve a quality education, yet they have substandard materials in which to learn with.

A survey, conducted in 2006 by Roper Public Affairs and Media, showed that young Americans answer about half (54 percent) of all the survey questions correctly. A large majority of young Americans fail a range of questions dealing with basic geography. Having geographic literacy is more than knowing locations on a map. It's understanding how people and places interact, where things come from, and where we're going. Without geography, our young people are unprepared for an increasingly global future. Your help with this project will begin to change that.
