by Mr. Tim Coyne: 

Exploring the Globe!

  • Next week we will be talking about what a country is.  We will also be introducing the campers to maps and globes so that they can get a better idea of how big our world really is.
  • We will locate Brazil, as well as many other countries of interest, on maps and globes and compare their sizes.
  • We will capitalize on our campers’ interest in animals and their habitats by learning about the rainforest in Brazil. Some questions we will ask are:
    • What are characteristics of a rainforest?
    • What kinds of interesting animals live their?
