Crafting a map of the land

The geography of the Earth for children is an interesting subject for study, spurring their imagination, expanding their horizons. But, given that the abstract thinking of preschoolers is far from perfect, geography for children should be as clear and understandable as possible for kids. There are a lot of benefits for studying geography: globes, atlases, maps. However, the images of the continents and oceans on them rarely attracts the attention of the baby and arouses his interest. Therefore, it is better to study the structure of the surface of our planet in a playful way.

We offer to carry out an interesting lesson using regular, things available to everyone:

  • A very large piece of paper the size of a kitchen table. You can use drawing paper sheets, wallpaper residue or wrapping paper.
  • Blue foil, cloth or colored paper.
  • Geographical Atlas (optional).
  • Photos of beautiful places and attractions.

In the process, wewe create together with children a model of the earth's crust, paying special attention to such concepts as “land”, “mainland”, “island” and “ocean”, “sea”, “river”.

In certain places on the surface of our improvised ocean we put cards with printed names of islands, straits, seas, oceans. For more interest in the ocean depths we inhabit sea animals - sharks, dolphins - depending on what toys are in the arsenal.

Also we settle animals and people on land, we put toy cars - everything that tells your imagination baby.
