Social Studies: Map Skills and Landforms


Students viewed BrainPopJr's Reading Maps. Each student has their own MyBrainPop account and thus were able to be independent logging in and watching the video. We focused on three main points about reading a map: compass rose, map key, and the map scale. Our last quadrant was a reflection question we used as an exit ticket. 


This is a Sheltered Strategies method called Pictorial Input. Students  and teachers create vivid color-coded visuals with high academic language. This one is about how people adapt to their desert environment. 

This Pictorial Input is about how people adapt to living on a mountain in Social Studies. 


This Pictorial Input is about how people adapt to living on a wetland such as Galveston.
