Second graders use games that use the atlas and the globe. Students take a ride (journey). Students place their chairs as if they are riding in a car. The Teacher is the driver. As the students travel along they point out different sites that they see along the way. Students discuss the importance of knowing how to use maps to help them find where they want to go.
Learners practice their mapping skills. In this geography skills lesson, students use atlases, highway maps, and other print sources to find sites of interest in Preston County.
