Teaching Your Gr1-6 Child Geography


My aim with compiling this book is that as parents and educators, we will get ideas for activities that will use our children's play to help them learn more  about geography--the study of the Earth.

Most of the suggestions in this book are geared to children from 5 to 12 years of age. Bear in mind, however, that youngsters vary widely in their development, and others--younger and older--may find the activities appropriate.

The activities and games are organised around five specific themes that help focus our thinking:

  1. Where are things located?
  2. What characteristics make a place special?
  3. What are relationships among people and places?
  4. What are the patterns of movement of people, products, and information?
  5. How can the Earth be divided into regions for study?

Each chapter begins with some background and examples of questions that geographers use as they strive to understand the Earth. This is followed by activities to help children learn key ideas.

There are two specific sets of lesson plans. Teaching kindergarten through 3rd grade about maps, which includes 7 lesson plans, 2 activity sheets, and teacher's information sheet comprising teaching ideas and lesson plan. This section teaches children how to understand and use maps.

Four lessons focus on What Do Maps Show? and combined with the lessons, teaches students basic geographic and cartographic skills.

Included are a selection Notepages, which are ideal for use in Notebooks, Lapbooks, file folders or for use in projects.  These pages can be printed out as and when required.

As with the Activity Pages, Maps, Q & A’s etc, please print however many copies of the section you would require.  Some of the Activity Sheets and Maps in the Lesson Plans are to be used with a number of the lessons.

Credits and references on appropriate pages and/or are reflected in the credits towards the end of this book.

Illustrations are either sourced from the Public Domain, credited to US Department of Education or from my own collection of Green Label Clipart.

Unit is compiled in A4 and UK English.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
