We begin our exploration of Latin America today! If you have any resources about Latin America that you would like to share, pertaining to any of the places below, please email me. Having real artifacts makes learning valuable! I have spent hours compiling a PPT (attached below) that includes many video clips and realistic pictures of the places students need to locate on a map. Here is our first standard:
SS6G1 The student will locate selected features of Latin America and the Caribbean.
a. Locate on a world and regional political-physical map: Amazon River, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, Pacific Ocean, Panama Canal, Andes Mountains, Sierra Madre Mountains, and Atacama Desert.
b. Locate on a world and regional political-physical map the countries of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Haiti, Mexico, Panama, and Venezuela.
As we work through the PPT, students will label their numbered map. A quiz later in the unit will be similar to this, so please work with your child locating these features. I have also attached various blank maps to practice this skill at home!
