Discover the world of geography, logging new geographic terms and combining them into one colorful scene.
During a unity of study focused on international or national geography, ask students to keep a log of geographic terms, perhaps related to a book that the class is reading (perhaps Misty of Chincoteague), such as inlet, mountain, and river. Have students write the word, a formal definition of the term, a re-written definition in their own words and an illustration of each word. Illustrations can easily be created with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.
Challenge students, working in teams of two, to sketch a scene illustrating several of their geography terms using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, Crayola Washable Markers, Crayons, Colored Pencils and/or Color Sticks on construction paper. Mix new colors by overlaying coats of crayon, marker, or colored pencil to make each feature unique.
Student groups swap drawings with another team. Study the new drawing. Name the geographic features depicted.
