This is a performance task project to make a poster tailored to the 3rd grade S.S. GPS standard: SS3G1 The student will locate major topographical features of the United States of America.
a. Identify major rivers of the United States of America: Mississippi, Ohio, Rio Grande, Colorado, Hudson.
b. Identify major mountain ranges of the United States of America: Appalachian, Rocky.
c. Locate the equator, prime meridian, and lines of latitude and longitude on a globe.
d. Locate Greece on a world map.
The file contains:
*a student direction sheet so they understand what should be included on their poster along with a rubric to understand how they will be graded
*a U.S. map for the student to draw in their rivers and mountain ranges
*a Word map for the student to label equator, prime meridian, lat, long lines, and Greece
* a zoomed-in map of Europe to more easily identify Greece
*separate rubrics for grading
I had the students glue their maps onto a large 9x12 sheet of construction paper or even a poster paper. It all looked nicely together for display.
