Geography Fair – $5/per country - Work on it a home, and then present it at a TBD date!
Geography Fair Coordinator - Lora Saul
Last year we did countries and it was a huge hit. This year you have a vote to do countries or states. How cool would it be to tour the US or the WORLD with your firends.
The cost for the geography fair will be strictly for the cost of the passports/stamps.
Each family will choose a country or state to showcase. Each family will submit a few countries/states that they would like to feature. The family will do the research and make their display and then each family will set up a table at the geography fair to showcase. Please indicate on the registration form in the section of two or three countries/states that your family would enjoy researching. I will email you the country that your family will be researching. Your children can do their own country if they would like, just have them pick two countries/states per child. We don’t want 25 kids doing China.
For the geography fair, each family will be given ½ or a whole table to display their information. The children will be given a passport to go around in the gym and tour the country displays.
You will be given a syllabus for a thorough study of a state or country.
Week 1 -- Mapping the Country
Week 2 – Flag, Coins, National Emblems (Eagle for USA)
Week 3 – Animals, or landmarks unique to that country
Week 4 – Food, clothing, unique to that country
Week 5 – Geography Fair
As we get closer to the actual fair, a sign-up will be put out for helping in set up or tear down of the tables.
