So, after my 4th hour took their exam I gave them back the world map I had them draw from memory the first day of class. Some of them were so funny and really Bad!! It was fun to hear, and see, my students reaction when they saw how much they had learned over the semester. I have to say that I was very surprised at the improvement some of them made. One of my final projects is their World Map Poster. They work on it all semester and its due the last week of school. They have to create a world map using a grid and coordinates. Some of them did such an Awesome job. I had them add the continents as we covered them. They also had to label some major features and they could get 5 bonus points for coloring it and adding lil extras. One of my students who is very artistically talented made such an Awesome map. I have included a pic below. I was so proud of so many of them and will miss many of them. It still surprises me how much I love teaching World Geography. I hated Geography in college and did not want to teach Geog. when they first offered me the job...just goes to show you, you never know.
