I remember the best day of second grade being the day that my teacher "flew" us to Florida for the day and we got to explore a bunch of different things there! When I became a teacher I knew I wanted to recreate that adventure by creating small educational units on fun places to visit!
Take your students on and exciting trip to Africa! They will love exploring the continent with you as their "captain!" I always set my chairs up in rows and try to recreate the inside of a plane while we fly and learn about each place. I even provide sprite and peanuts! :) You can use this to incorporate some social studies into your students day or as a reward for good class behavior!
