Globetrackers Mission engages students in grades 2-6 to learn geography, map skills, and world cultures through an episodic story. Each week, a new episode, in the format of a blog post, written by fictional teenagers Geo and Meri, appears on the Globetrackers Mission site. They travel the world on a secret mission for an unnamed government agency. Along the way, they look for clues and blog about what they see to their Uncle Globetracker.
Students who follow the mission learn about world geography as they respond to Geo and Meri’s questions using maps, images, and links provided. Concepts include landforms, map skills, cultures, major landmarks, continents, oceans, rivers, and more.
