Welcome to Geography Superstars!
The Fern Bluff Elementary PTA is proud to offer a fun enrichment opportunity to all students! Geography Superstars is a fun program designed to enhance your child's geography experience/skills, including small incentives for working on these extra geography problems at home!
The program will run from February 1 to April 14, 2023. To participate, please register your child using the link below. Then, print out the worksheets at home and have your child complete them at his/her own pace, but all worksheets must be completed by April 14. Worksheets for the grades are posted by grade level.
To turn in worksheets, there are 2 options: Photograph and email each sheet to firstname.lastname@example.org either as you go or all at once OR turn in the completed physical packet during the week of April 10 (packet turn in instructions will be emailed at the beginning of April).
Each grade level is associated with a continent:
Tips for Success:
Your role as a parent is to encourage your child and facilitate problem solving. Allow time during the week for your child to think about each problem. You may need to read the problem to your child, explaining any words not known. Feel free to suggest a strategy for solving the problem, but please DO NOT GIVE THE ANSWERS. In order for this program to be effective, the thinking must be done by the students. Please encourage your child to show his/her work.
It is normal for a child NOT to be able to complete every problem on a worksheet. The process of reading, understanding and approaching the problems is a valuable step in solving many types of problems. Remind your child that he/she is not expected to know the answers to every problem.
For any questions, please contact the Geography Superstars PTA volunteers. Please do not contact your child's teacher for help with these worksheets. Thank you for allowing your child the opportunity to participate in this exciting new geography adventure!
