Students will meet Journey Bear, a lovable bear who travels the world and shares facts and cultural information with students. Use each poster as a whole group warm up activity, a learning center, or a group research activity.
At the beginning of the week I revealed the clues to my students and set the poster up as a research station. Students researched the clues and wrote their predictions on slips of paper placed into a box. At the end of the week I would pull a winning name out of the box, and we would talk about strategies for putting the clues together to determine the country where Journey Bear visited that week. But check out the lesson guide for more ideas for your classroom!
Each country poster includes fact- rich clues about capital cities, population (use it to reinforce place value!), food, landmarks, and of course geography in easy to read clues!
Use it to teach non fiction research, making connections, or even as a writing prompt. The possibilities are endless.
For the IB PYP, it's a great way to practice the attitude curiosity and being an inquirer (learner profile).
Laminate the posters to use year after year.
