As often as possible, 6th-8th grade teachers at TLC! like to integrate geography lessons into PE activities. Teachers have found that the students seem to absorb the information better and enjoy themselves in the process.
By dividing and mixing up 6th- 8th graders into teams, the students get to work and socialize with students that are normally not in their circle of friends. Sometimes students are given geography trivia questions in between other physical and team building activities. Other times they learn about games played around the world and research the country in which these games are played.
On this day of GeoPE, students played a number of team building games while learning about world geography. Students and teachers alike got especially tickled with the game “I Love My Fluffy Bunny” as seen below.
