Parts of a Globe
Our class about parts of a globe ended up taking two days to complete. I am still working on timing and learning an appropriate expectation of their pace. Anyway ... I didn't read all of this fantastic book pictured above, but instead I focused on the parts of a globe. As we read, we marked the corresponding places with colored pencils on their papers which were glued inside their SNB. I made up an impromptu game of Simon Says with North Pole (hands on head), South Pole (touch toes), Equator (hands at waist), latitude (arms back and forth in front of them - "crossing the T's" as I told them), longitude (arms moving parallel to each other up and down). They are still asking to play it weeks later!
