Sixth grade students are headed toward mastery of the Kentucky Academic Standard for Social Studies 6.G.GR.1: Use maps and other geographic representations, geospatial technologies, and spatial thinking.
A rubric helped guide them through the process of creating a model that included; labeling the equator, creating a map title, compass rose, cartographer, continents, and oceans.
Students were very imaginative! Models included posters, paper mache, balloons, pumpkins, and even clothing!
