Our studies have taken us to look at our Earth as an orbitting and spinning rock moving around the sun that lights and warms our world on a predictable schedule. We are dabbling in the geography as it is organized on maps and globes. We know what a Compass Rose is, the Equator, the Prime Meridian and International Date Lines, the four hemispheres, and tectonic plates that make up our 7 continents. Your children have chosen a country from North or South America to study in school and to complete a short report on. At home, they will create something that represents that country and they will bring it in to share in class. More information will be coming on this project!
