A great geography lesson that encourages children to use creativity and figure out where the food they ate came from. So many ways you can alter this activity- have students be given a profile of a person and their basic food likes. Find at least 5 countries where you can find food that he or she will like.
Since 1st grade is in the beginning of school, it is important to make sure the students know the basics. Of course being able to read the map will be a prerequisite for answering questions about geography based on a map. -MDB
