      Hands on geography!! The teacher is reviewing latitude, longitude, hemispheres, continent and ocean names and cardinal/intermediate directions. Students use yarn for the Prime Meridian and Equator, and index cards with the names for the oceans. Then the class uses unifix cubes to mark all the spots they are responsible for being able to locate.
