Fourth Grade Geography Studies
As part of National Geography Week (Nov. 16-20), fourth grade students navigated the world using Google Earth. Bill Fredenburg, brother of Mrs. Jacobs (4th grade teacher), and an employee of Duke Energy, led students in geographic search and application activities used in his work. Students were amazed to find their school, home, and locations around the globe!
