In fourth grade, we started out simple. Map the United States. About 3 weeks of practice. Cake.
Fifth grade: let me map out the scenario. (Bad pun.) One week to learn South and Central America, plus all of the capitals and geographic features. Tough? Yes. Impossible? No.
Okay, let me back up. The fourth, fifth, and sixth graders learn some area to map. Four: USA. Five: South America. Six: The World.
Impossible, some might say.
If you are one of those people, get this:
After two 50 minute periods of mapping, I am almost done.
I can almost hear your gasping.
PS: 2 1/2 days left until I am in 6th grade!!!
