GROW: Grade 3. Geographic Review of Our World: A Daily Five-Minute Geography Program for Grades 3-11.
Blaga, Jeffrey J.; And Others
This program presents a method for improving geographic literacy in a logical and meaningful way and for inclusion of geography in every social studies class. The third grade program utilizes six questions per week over a period of 32 weeks and is designed to be used during the first five minutes of each social studies class. The program focuses on developing students' ability to locate different geographic features. A chalkboard and an atlas are the only items needs to implement the program. Questions in the program have been sequentially placed to ensure exposure to and repetition of geographic skill areas. Placement of a question within the sequence was based on recommendations made in publications of the National Council for the Social Studies. Major social studies textbook series were reviewed for question appropriateness. Over 50 geographic concepts are developed throughout the program. The book concludes with a glossary of geographic terms. (SM)
