Concepts of Geography

Students understand and apply concepts of geography.

 Narrative for the Concepts of Geography

Through active learning experiences, students in the second grade are able to apply thinking and decision-making skills within the context of their school and neighborhood.  They should have opportunities to engage in problem solving and participate in the development of classroom rules. They should have the opportunity to use a variety of means for gathering and organizing information.

In the geography standards, students locate their community, state and nation on maps and globes; identify major geographic characteristics of their local community; explore geographic relationships between the physical and environmental characteristics of their community, and compare neighborhoods in their community to those in other parts of the world.
