GROW: Grade 10. Geographic Review of Our World: A Daily Five-Minute Geography Program for Grades 3-11.
Blaga, Jeffrey J.; And Others
Student understanding of geographic aspects of the world will be enhanced by utilizing these questions during the first five minutes of each social studies class. One goal of the program is to improve students' ability to locate geographic features, such as landforms and water bodies, natural and political boundaries, and capitals. This method also allows teachers to infuse geographic concepts throughout the social studies program. There are nearly 300 questions, allowing use of two per day for four days of the week over a period of 36 weeks. Items needed to implement the program are a chalkboard and an atlas. Questions in the program have been placed sequentially to ensure exposure to and repetition of geographic skill areas. The daily questions vary according to type, difficulty, and content. Once a concept has been introduced at a certain grade level, each succeeding level will include a pre-determined number of questions to reinforce the concept. Over 50 geographic concepts are developed throughout the program. The format for each day includes the concept introduced, the questions, and the answers. (SM)
