MAPS & CULTURE - SOCIAL SCIENCE - PRIMARY 2
My final project will focus on Unit 3 from the Social Science 2 book by the Comunidad de Madrid. In this unit, second-graders will learn about maps. They will learn how to read maps and globes, identify the different continents and major cities, as well as learn about aspects of Spanish culture.
When we finish the unit, I would like my students to learn a bit more about other countries by working in pairs to create a poster project.
As a language assistant from the U.S., part of my role is to facilitate cultural exchange. In addition, I have traveled to more than 30 countries and I have experience writing about travel and culture. Therefore, this final project aligns with my interests.
Each pair will choose a different country. Being able to work in pairs and split up the work will help cater to different learning styles in the classroom. For instance, one student might be better at researching while another might be better at creatively putting the poster together.
I have created my own poster from The United States as an example. If time allows, the main teacher can create their own for Spain, using page 43 from the book (below) as a guide.
Each project must include:
The name of the country
A map of the country
The continent it's in
Its capital city
A picture of famous food from the country
