Make your geography and social studies lessons an engaging experience by allowing students to experience the sights, sounds and culture of each country that you talk about by decorating your classroom to match your lesson. Plan a Fiesta as you explore the history and culture of Mexico or create a mountain scene at your talk about the Himalayas. Your classroom is sure to be delightful and engaging to all of your students with place themed props and cutouts.
Looking to really upgrade your student's social studies experience? Work with other teachers to set up a world exploration day at your school! Have each teacher pick a country and decorate their classroom to match. Students can go from classroom to classroom and learn about each country in a fun and engaging way. Pull in classroom volunteers and parents to organize bringing in themed snacks and shuffling kids around the hallways. After they've visited each country, be sure that everyone receives a stamp in their pretend passport!
