Blankenship, Glen
This instructional package is targeted at students in grades 3 and 4. The package, presented to students as a travelogue, stresses basic map, globe, and geography skills, and presents case studies of communities (cities/towns/villages) across Germany. It contains three lessons: (1) "One Germany in Numbers: Size, Population and Landscape"; (2) "The German Landscape"; and (3) "Traveling through Germany". Lessons 1 and 2 provide students an opportunity to practice basic geography skills in a comparative Germany/United States context. Lesson 3 allows students to apply their knowledge to a visual tour of Germany. Each lesson begins with an outline for teaching which includes instructional objectives, a list of resource materials, and a sequenced list of procedures for implementing the lessons. All lessons contain worksheets. Appended is the Diary of My Travels through Germany slide/tape transcripts (Schleswig-Holstein, North Rhine-Westphalia, Bavaria, Saxony, Berlin, Mecklenburg-Pomerania). An audio tape accompanies the text materials. (BT)
