I wish I had more copies...but the atlas is great to teach kiddos the basic geography topics. It is a lot more interesting to read/look at than our text book.
We started our study of Pennsylvania on Friday. For the next five weeks we will learn all about our home state. I try, when possible, to incorporate writing into the content areas. To do this I created a descriptive writing activity that my kiddos will work on this week. In this activity the students need to pretend that an alien is visiting from space.
Another fun project that my students will be working on this week is Exploring Ireland. This project is from Teaching with a Mountain View. It is a great way for kids to see how they will use adding and subtraction multi-digit numbers in real life.
What are you up to this week?
