Connecting with the World

January 10th

In Social Studies we are studying four countries:  India, Ukraine, Peru and Tunisia.  We have been using our mapping skills to locate these countries on the world map.  We have labeled the countries, discussed the continents that they are on and talked about the capital cities.  We are also working on a project on the Chromebooks finding each of the flags for the four countries.

One Geology World MapThis great interactive map helped us find the answers to our questions about location and capital cities.  If you click on the country you are taken to another page with a closer view. We were able to use our mapping skills to look at the legends and find the capital cities. Click on the link if you'd like to give it a try!

Here's what we have found out so far:

India- is a country in Asia.  The capital city is New Delhi. 

Ukraine- is a country in Europe.  The capital city is Kiev. 

Peru- is a country in South America.  The capital city is Lima. 

Tunisia- is a country in Africa.  The capital city is Tunis.
