Our class was the recipient of a collection of flags from the travels of Dr. J. Norstedt. He very generously donated the flags and these first graders put them to use!
First they used atlases to identify their chosen flags, then used the index to locate the country’s information in the atlas.
They studied the maps to identify the region of the world and the capital.
They read for interesting facts and developed a greater sense of place value as they worked to understand the population and the area of their countries.
Then they prepared to give their presentation to their classmates – and to be published on the blog. We hope you’ll leave a comment about their accomplishments.
Thank you Dr. Norstedt!
