Kindergarten Geography

In addition to oral discussion, students will learn concepts through individual map work, creating art activities of each continent, and hearing presentations by guests who will come into the classroom to present their experiences of different countries. In addition to being able to discuss their learning, students will demonstrate their understanding of these topics through completing notebook tasks about each continent.

The most reliable way to receive specific information about course work, including topics and timing, is through the weekly newsletters sent home with your child. To support your student, please consider reading the weekly newsletters so that you will be able to help your child find appropriate pictures from the internet, National Geographic magazines, etc. about the continent we are currently studying.

Mrs. Christine Moray

Christine is excited to continue her career of teaching kindergarten at American Heritage Salt Lake. She has taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, and kindergarten in Salt Lake City School District for the last 35 years.  “I love teaching kindergarten, because I can easily see the huge amount of learning the kids achieve. They come in sometimes not knowing how to write their name, but by the end of the year, they’re reading, writing and doing all sorts of math. Now that I have the opportunity of teaching children at American Heritage, I also look forward to sharing that they are children of God.” Christine has been married for 37 years and has 5 adult children and 5 sweet grandchildren.
