The Helms Bilingual Education Create-a-Continent project is a student and teacher favorite.
After learning physical and water features vocabulary, students create maps of continents from their imagination. Since the continents are based on themes of the students choice (e.g., Dog-Land) the students have fun designing and naming the geographic features (e.g., Dog Leg Bay is a body of water shaped like a dog leg).
Each continent includes physical and water features (named according to the student's map theme) along with common map features such as a compass rose, legend, and lines of lat and long.
Included in this package are;
- Student instructions and table
- Teacher instructions and tips for success and differentiation
- A customizable grading rubric
THS PRODUCT ALSO AVAILABLE IN SPANISH. DESIGNED FOR GEOGRAPHY, WORLD GEOGRAPHY, CULTURAL STUDIES, INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE, AND SIMILAR CLASSROOMS!
