This is it...

Heart pounding, rapid breathing, nightmares...yep, it's that time of year. Back to school...dun dun dun. Okay I actually may be a little dramatic there (ask anyone who knows me, it's not uncommon!). But seriously, every year I feel like this. The anxiety of the unknown plus the excitement of getting back into the classroom and teaching.

"Loaves of Landforms" (Scholastic.com) I love this tactile, hands-on idea for teaching children about different types of landforms. :)

NEW! Loaves of Landforms

A foundation in geography begins with an understanding of the terms geographers use to describe the features of Earth.
