The Whole Earth Geography Book, with Ready-to-Make Daily Practice Cards. Grades 4-6.
Fredericks, Anthony D.
This book is designed to help students use their geography knowledge in real-life situations and explorations. The approach emphasizes problem-solving activities in which students can use higher-level thinking skills together with basic geographical facts. The activities are organized into two groups--Daily Problems and Extended Challenges. Information in the Daily Problems section is presented in the categories of U.S. Geography (64 problems), Map and Globe Skills (64 problems), and World Geography (64 problems). The problems are arranged on a card to be used in a variety of ways. Extended Challenges require long-term investigations by students who will assemble data, interpret facts, organize thoughts, and process information. These activities are intended as reinforcement activities in a variety of classrooms and with differing ability groups. (EH)
