Thank you for viewing my First Grade Geography Centres!
Are you looking to up the engagement in your geography lessons? Are you wanting to get your kids engaged in hands-on geography exploration? This set of geography centres is for you! Please download the preview to check out exactly what is included before you purchase.
This set of geography centres has been designed specifically to go alongside my First Grade Geography: Investigating Our School unit.
8 fun and engaging science centres to review understandings of places and features, pieces to print and laminate, and matching activity sheets where relevant. All you need to add are some STEM materials, counters, spinners, and optionally magnifying glasses.
Geography skills: diagram drawing, labelling diagrams, and using content-specific language
Who Am I? - Students work in pairs or groups to play. One student chooses a feature card and describes the its location and purpose to the group. The other students guess the feature being described.
Label It! - Students label their chosen landscape.
Place It! - Students work in pairs to play. One student gives directions to the other for where to place each feature.
Write About It! - Students choose an animal activity sheet and write all about it. Students can fill in the animal’s habitat in the background of the picture. Optionally add non-fiction texts about each animal for the students to refer to.
Position It! - Students spin the bug spinner to choose which bug to place and the second spinner to tell where to place it in relation to the trees.
Sort It! - 1 - Students sort the feature cards into the spaces in which they belong. Three features are included for each of the eight rooms.
2 – Sort the features by whether they belong inside a school or not.
Spin and Cover - Students work independently or in pairs to play. Students spin the spinner and cover a feature found inside or outside. Continue playing until all features are covered.
Build It! - Students choose an place mat and use STEM materials (play dough, pop sticks, paper, plastic and cardboard containers etc.) to build features belonging there.
Diagram It! - Students choose landscape and draw a scientific diagram of it. For extra fun, add a set of magnifying glasses for students to observe.
