Mapping, Moving, Modeling, Motivating--Meaningful Geography in the Elementary School.
Boston, Jane
Social Studies Review, v24 n1 p43-45 Fall 1984
Techniques for making geography more relevant to elementary students are discussed. For example, the abstract ideas of latitude and longitude can be taught by having students "live" a grid system, i.e., evenly spaced letters and numerals posted on the classroom walls. An interdisciplinary approach is needed. (RM)
