Kirsten Burrett '18, Averie Manke '18, Todd Conway '18, and Erika Hinz '18, presented "Dive Into the Standards by Exploring Midwest Geography" at the Iowa Council for Social Studies in Altoona, Iowa, Oct. 2. Their session explored the benefits of implementing real world activities in the classroom. The session focused on geography of the Midwest region and allowed educators to experiment with GAK (slime) to represent how glaciers have had an impact on landforms. Participants also engaged in creating a 3-D map of the landforms in the Midwest region by using a variety of materials.
