Unit I Maps Ohio

What states border Ohio? What are some of our state’s major geographical landmarks? Unit I students in Amy Kulhavik and Margaret Walsh’s classes mapped the state of Ohio during a social studies lesson. Kulhavik explained different geographical qualities and students drew them on their maps. Students learned which states border Ohio, the meaning of the state’s name, and where the Ohio River is located. As she taught, Kulhavik asked students to recall the meanings of words they already learned, such as the word border, and made the lesson engaging and participatory.
