My daughter brought home her homework Friday....It's a project due Sept 23.
She has to make a continent. With at least 3 countries. 2 main cities in each country. The map must have latitude and Longitude lines, what the country exports (coffee Electronics etc) , 2 modes of transportation, 3 different land forms (Mountains, deserts etc) . Then she has to name it all by picking a "theme" like if she names her country Shape land, you can have circle lake and triangle mountains. Then she has to make a map of all this with everything on it (Like a poster board map, with a compass and a map key too.)
My jaw dropped, It just seems so much for a 2nd grader!
