Session 5 AM 4-5: World Geography Adventures
Session 5 AM: July 20 - 31
Grade level: 4-5
Teacher: Mrs. Shelli Lavender, B.S., M. Ed.
Description: The National Geographic Bee happens each winter across the US for students in grades 4-8. In preparation, this Summer Explorations session takes our students on a "globe-trotting" excursion around the US and the World. We will "visit" famous landmarks here and on all our inhabited continents. Learners will use various digital and written sources as well as games and puzzles to explore the states and landmarks in our own country and across the globe. Cultural and geographic features will be the focal points of this fun and exciting session! We will round out the session with a mock Geo Bee for parents to attend!
