The children began studying islands and lakes in geography this week. Using our models, we gave them lessons on an island - land surrounded by water- and lake- area of water surrounded by land.
The children were shown how to fill up a pitcher with water and pour it into the model to increase their understanding of these concepts. We also discussed their own experiences on islands and different lakes they had visited.
As an extension of this work, some children chose to color pages showing island and lake.
