Comparing Geography Worksheets
2nd and 6th grade
Decision making is one of the most important aspects of teaching. One type of decision making is choosing what worksheets and resources to use to teach students. As an artifact in my social studies methods block class, I compared a geography worksheet from a sixth grade class to a geography worksheet given to second graders. I analyzed the layout of the worksheets as well as the different types of questions that were asked. After doing this, I realized that before giving students worksheets, they should be looked over to insure that the worksheet would benefit the child academically.
