Students will locate on the map and globe their local community, state, country, and continent. They will learn various facts of each including the 7 continents. The students make a craft to help them grasp the idea of where they live in our world.
This activity can be expanded as you want for your local area. I had the students learn a fact from each part of the world that they live in and add that information to the back of the project.
Project includes samples and templates and is easy to put together.
