Students will also learn to use maps that extend to regions beyond their neighborhood to the farmlands and to the places where people work to produce their food. They will also learn to explore geographic

4 questions such as: How does climate affect the crops that a farmer can grow? Why are some areas more fertile than others are? Why is water such an important resource for farmers? They will also understand and appreciate the many ways that parents, grandparents, and ancestors have made a difference. This will help them develop a beginning sense of history. Teachers will ask students: Where did the family come from? What was it like to live there? Who was in the family then? Do photos or letters from that time still exist? Reading literature helps children acquire deeper insights into the cultures from which families came; the stories, games, and festivals parents or grandparents might have enjoyed as children; the work that children as well as their families were expected to perform; their religious practices; and the dress, manners, and morals expected of family members at that time. Comparisons will be drawn with children's lives today to discover how many of these family traditions, practices, and values have carried forward to the present and what kinds of changes have occurred.
