Geography for Yom Ha’atzmaut
Posted On September 8, 2016
Last year over Yom Ha’atzmaut we created a huge map of Israel. The students were then give pieces of paper with directions where to travel. Each student was given a different direction. An example might be- travel from Jerusalem to Beer Sheva to Eilat. This integrated the learning that was going on in the classroom about Yom Ha’atzmaut and Israel, as well as created hands on learning about the geography and map of Israel and the location of places. Students learnt where Jerusalem is in relation to Tel Aviv, how to travel south to the desert and how to get to Haifa which is on the sea.
