Grades K- 4

Mission Geography modules at this grade level offer learning opportunities for both very young students and older, more skilled students. Suggestions are made in many investigations on ways to adapt materials to the youngest learners. The focus is on fundamental spatial skills, simple physical geography, and Earth as the home of humans. The module Paths presents an innovative way to consider linkages between and among physical and human elements of the Earth system.
