9 Year Basic Education Curriculum
This topic is to expose the kids to certain knowledge about geography. The kids have heard things like mountains and rivers. At this age, the definitions of these concepts will not make meanings to them. But, the essence here is for them to have little knowledge about them, especially knowing the names of the tallest mountains and longest rivers in the world. Knowledge of the Rivers in Africa will also be necessary.
You let the kids know that mountain is a word used to describe land that is raised high above the land that surrounds us. Mountains are very tall and higher than hills. They are large land forms that rise above the surrounding land. You have to bring the kids out of the class to explain this concept. Let them stand in the school compound—– which is a
land, and imagine another land on top the land where they are standing.
This will give them a mental picture of what a mountain is. Show them pictures of mountains. Engage them in class activities that will illustrate what mountains look like.
