Creatively learning geography


How can you get a seventh or eighth grade student interested in geography?

How about mix it with something they already like?


That is exactly what Ms. Shelley and Ms. Breanne decided to do with their Creative Learning Through Geographic Exploration class.


About a week before school started back in August, each teacher was figuring out their Friday schedule.  For several years Ms. Shelley had wanted to have a bigger chunk of time for P.E. on Fridays and combine some of the grade levels in order to do cooperative learning and team building activities.  At the same time, Ms. Breanne was dreading teaching the same geography class that she had in the past because she just couldn’t get the kids to see the point of learning geography.

The two teachers put their heads together and proposed a plan that would expose the students to geography through hands-on, team building activities.

Ta-dah!  Archery and geography!

And more importantly, 100% participation.
