Primary-school Geography

eHWeAreGeographersHere is a “kit” of materials to support mapping activities
in early childhood (Pre-K through grade 2 or so):

Primary classroom geography kit

For several years, we were asked to help design mapping lessons
for high-poverty K-2 schools in Harlem. Each of these activities
has a focus on a different mode of spatial reasoning.

CAUTION: the graphics are not designed for use in classrooms,
They are intended as guides for teacher planning sessions,
where teachers discuss how they will implement the lessons
with their own materials that fit their classrooms (see kit above).

For more tips, see Chapter 6 of Teaching Geography (Guilford Press, 3rd ed., 2014;
The Appendix to Chapter 6 is a review of research about spatial thinking with visual images like maps.
