Notes of Lessons: Geography, Class III

Notes of Lessons: Geography, Class III

[We have thought that it might be of use to our readers (in their own families) to publish from month to month during the current year, Notes of Lessons prepared by students of the House of Education for the pupils of the Practising School. We should like to say, however, that such a Lesson is never given as a tour de force, but is always an illustration or an expansion of some part of the children’s regular studies (in the Parents’ Review School), some passage in one or other of their school books.—Ed.]

Plan for Working Two Classes TogetherFor Class IIIGeography

The Parents’ Review, 1903, p. 847

Before the lesson begins, have a blank map already drawn on the blackboard, and the map questions written up on another board.

Set Class III. to work to learn the map of Scandinavia, and write the answers to the questions. Then go to Class Ia., and give them a lesson on “Word-building” for a quarter of an hour.

When this is finished let Class Ia. leave the room, and take up the geography lesson to Class III. for the remaining quarter of an hour.
