Course Description:

Who wants to draw the US map? We will be doing a few things in this class.

First, I will read out loud from the book Minn of the Mississippi. This classic book is the story of a turtle as she travels all the way down the Mississippi river.

Second, we will work through the book “Draw the USA”, probably at about three pages per week. In this book the student will learn to draw a map of the United States, and (optionally) be challenged to draw the whole map from memory at the end of the year.

Last, we will share what we know about the different places we study on the US map. Did you read about it in a book? Your grandmother lives there? You visited it? Your favorite _____ was born there? Etc.

Homework will include drawing the map of the USA using the book. I would recommend 2-3 times per week, using a quick sketch approach. I also ask that parents help their children think of something to tell the class about the places we are drawing or reading about.
