How you can use this text set in the 2nd or 3rd grade classroom: This text set would be perfect to cover and expand upon the standard SS3G1: The student will locate major topographical features; identify major mountain ranges of the United States of America: Appalachian, Rocky. After discussing with the students where the region is located, the books we have selected will aid in further understanding of the area. This includes, the type of people that live in the area, the dialects spoken, what people do for jobs, the economy of the region, family customs, and traditions of the area. The text set can be read as a whole group throughout the unit, or can be placed around the room for students to use in small groups while participating in an activity based on each text.

3 Resources to Support Geographic Literacy Importance

*This text supports teachers in their quest to incorporate geographic literacy in their classrooms. The book offers resources, drawings, and curriculum guidance in the best way to integrate this discipline through childrens literature.

*Our text, "Children's Books in Children's Hands" supports this literacy type. Specifically, page 109 focuses on multicultural literacy importance.

* "Teaching For Geographic Literacy: Our Afterschool Geography Club" is an article by Karen A. Thomas-Brown that explains the importance of geography teaching, and how to do it using childrens literature. The article focuses on a study done during an afterschool geography club. This is another great source for supporting why we need to foster geography knowledge in young learners.
