Third Graders Develop Map Skills

                 Our Third Graders at G.L.H. Johnson are busy learning about the world. We are busy preparing for our first SOLs as elementary school students and 1st Nine Weeks Benchmarks. In order to help our student with developing map skills they are required to learn the positions and names of the 7 continents and 5 oceans, and create a world map.

                 With so many continents to study, we learned a song to help keep the names straight. The Continent Song is sung to the tune of Frere Jacques. So, ask your child to sing it to you and join along.
