Geography Class Gets Fun For Elementary Students

Geography class just got a whole lot more fun for some Bowling Green elementary students.

A giant traveling map of Asia has been making its way across the country since National Geography Awareness Week began in early November.

The map is parked at McNeill Elementary until Dec. 14.

This unique teaching tool has been incorporated into PE class, making for a fun way to reinforce geographic literacy lessons on Asia that have been taught all year long.

"With the amount of importing products that we have and food and people migrating, we need to learn about this culture in our back door," explained Elizabeth Riggs, a McNeill Elementary 5th Grade teacher.

Riggs says Kentucky is lucky to have been included on the map's nationwide tour.

The map was at Potter Gray Elementary school last week.
