A favorite of my students!
This product is a supplement to be used with Education World's Mrs. Waffenschmidt (free paragraphs that are found online). It is a great way to introduce your students to physical and human landmarks around the world. Mrs. Waffenschmidt is a fictional character that travels around the world. Students read paragraphs with clues and then use their research skills to figure out where the landmark and its location. Students can use context clues, their prior knowledge, and research skills to determine important information that will lead to the landmark. There are 36 total landmarks that your students will visit throughout the year. I usually do one Mrs. Waffenschmidt landmark per week and double up toward the end of the year.
I use this to supplement my IB, Social Studies, and Nonfiction Reading curriculum.
