Write, Wipe and Repeat!

My students need maps, markers, and labels to help them learn and master geography. Map skills will help them to travel without leaving their desk!

My Students

Pop Quiz! Name all of the continents. Done? Try all of the oceans. Got it? What's the capital of Sweden? Name three types of geographical features. These dilemmas, plus some, are what my students enter the seventh grade with. I don't want them to leave with these quandaries, so please donate to this project we have geography resources!

My students come from a variety of experiences and backgrounds.

My school population is mixed, based on race/ethnicity. We are about 72% underprivileged, meaning that percentage of students, with the proper documentation, receives free and reduced price lunch. Because of this high population of students on free and reduced price lunch, there are certain things my students' families simply can't afford such as boarding school, out of the country vacations, or even subscriptions to National Geographic. Furthermore, my school is unable to provide subscriptions to such magazines because we are 3% under the threshold to be considered a Title I school, which would have entitled our school to $50,000+ in funding each year. My kids are high energy, deserving, and most importantly my future. They need and deserve to be able to travel, even when their parents cannot afford it.

My Project

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Last year I spent time printing off countless copies of world maps and executing activities with these maps, but many of my students could not keep up with them. I have requested maps, markers, and labels to help my students learn and master geography. Map skills will help them to travel without leaving their desk! This year I would like to put a map in each of my students' hands, which they can draw and write on throughout the school year. They will be able to look at the geographical features of the Sahara and compare them to those of the Arctic Tundra. My students will begin to make connections with events such as the Industrial Revolution and how that has/has not affected us today. Multiple lessons will be focused around locating our country/region of interest, learning of how its location affected a particular event, and contrasting that event to a much different country/region.

My students, unlike myself, have a very unique opportunity.

They can travel the world from their desk. My public school education did a pretty decent job, but for some of my friends who needed to touch and feel in order to connect, well, not so much. For my diverse learners I would give them...the world! Won't you? Please donate today to this project!
