Parents are often far too busy to think about social studies at night. Use what is happening in our world and communities to make it easier. In this game, use the laminated maps to help children learn where current events are taking place.
Have your child read about a current event in the newspaper or view a news story on TV.
Use the laminated maps to find that area of the United States or the world in which the event is happening and circle it on the map. It takes no time on your part and your child is learning geography with a hands-on activity!
