Learners read a passage (included) about America, its land, and seas. Students think about the meanings of the words contrasts, vast, grasslands, fertile, bayous, glaciers, tundra, and plateaus. They label illustrations with the correct vocabulary words and complete several other activities. They finish by writing the vocabulary word on the line next to its meaning.
Teaching kids how to use reference material can be fun! After a brief discussion on the type of information and ways to use an Atlas, learners go on an Atlas scavenger hunt. They break into teams and try to find as many items listed on the worksheet in the shortest amount of time.
