Explore the world with my Geoexplorers projects!
Perfect for little hands, this do-it-yourself project will let everyone get involved! The project consists of three pieces of paper, two with Stonehenge blocks, and one of the base. Just print the base out on green paper, and print the two stone sheets on white paper (or even better, some stone-looking paper used for scrap-booking!).
Each little stone is printed on both sides, with a number on the bottom. Have your students cut out each stone piece (16 total), then have them find the matching number on the green paper, and tape or glue them down.
To assess the ability to follow directions from a text, I have written directions included. Each step is broken down to be able to complete the project.
Use the sun or a flashlight to see how the light shines through Stonehenge. This is a perfect project for studying an equinox or the seasons. I drew each stone block and the base too. I love making learning "hands-on" for my students, and they loved this project!
A map is included as well for the students to find the location they have just studied. The map can be used to create a "Geoexplorers" notebook, and they can revisit the map to show where they have explored.
Passports are included if you choose to do more of my "Geoexplorer" lessons. Each lesson includes a unique "Stamp" about the area they have just studied so that they can add it to their passport. Your students can travel the globe in their seats, and they will wonder where you are going to take them next! Just look for more "Geoexplorer" projects in my shop :)
