Lesson One:  Geography of South America

    My name is Jennfier Harrell.  I am a fourth grade teacher at Hammond Hill Elementary School in North Augusta, South Carolina.  Our school has a school wide theme this year, "Writing Around the World".  Each hall has a continent that they are studying and writing about.  My hall is currently studying South America.  I have written three lessons  about South America's geography, different countries, and rain forests.
