I would like any ideas for introducing geography to my social studies class. I normally do a poem/song on the continents to help them remember them, but I want something else to do with them. My coworker was telling me about a project she is going to do, but asked me not to do it because it was her idea and next year she wont be able to use the same idea any more if they alredy did the project with me. So since I cant do it, I will share her idea ...She plans to have the kids make piñatas. In case you dont know its what kids break at partys. It is messy but fun. She is going to blow up balloons and you cut up strips of newspapers and dip them in water mixed with flour and leave it to harden. The next day you pop the balloon and your mold should have made, then the kids can decorate them. I am honestly very jelaous of her creative self haha, its a great idea, but now i cant use it...she probably wont do it, but i cant go over her and do it anyway its not right. After venting, im ready to ask...any ideas?
