Hello again, here is another sheet that I want to share with you. I have collected these facts, and used them in the class room as extension work or second period work after the children have been introduced to an atlas and how to use one. These lists are ideal to be used with the pin maps. this will give the children the opportunity to have some facts that they have to find.

They build their understanding of the world, continents or countries. FYI, it will not take away their exploration, rather add on. And they are a great point of interest and good to know. In this particular one, the 12 longest rivers of the world, the lengths are missing. A good continuation after having discoverd them on a map, to look for the lengths of each,… Interdisciplinary follow-up works can be aligned with these facts.
