K-2 Geography 1: Treasure Hunts, Classroom models, and Playground Maps:

This session is about the autumn part of a yearlong K-2 geography package. The core of the autumn module is an engaging multi-week treasure-map project, complete with forms and rubrics for a number of diagnostic, scaffold, and ELA/math spinoff mini-activities. Supporting materials include reading guides, curriculum planning docs, activity forms, and a Primary Classroom Geography Kit. Session participants will get a brief review of neuroscience research about spatial reasoning and math education, see examples of student work, discuss ways of adapting the materials to fit local conditions, and get access to a K-8 curriculum website
