Social Studies: Geography

Today we talked about teaching geography to our students. Teaching geography is more than just memorizing states and cities on a map. Geography includes things like land formations, how people and goods and information get places, how humans have changed particular locations, how humans adapt to the environment around them, and language and culture. Our teacher engaged us in another fun activity that we could do in our own classroom someday. We had to draw four images that symbolized a location on a map, each location being within the same state. Then, after looking at our drawings, our classmates had to try to figure out the cities we had drawn. If they were unable to figure out the cities we drew, we could give them the coordinates on a map and they could locate them using that tool.
Can you guess our cities?
