BTW, don't you think sixth grade is a bit OLD for lego

Also, what ways might the KIDS understand? Try empathising with them. After all we already speak english, how might you understand, for example, the Armenian alphabet better if someone was teaching it to you? What ways have they successfully learned in the past?

In Holland we call Geology physical Geography and the rest we call social geography, I'm happy that I've already passed the physical one 3 years ago, and honestly I don't know how!

I'd plan a project; either an in class presentation you'd do yourself, or you'd assign a part of it to each group, whichever way you prefer.
For example, pick a volcano. Your geography lesson would be its location on the map, the surface. Your geology lesson: either you do this by way of presentation or have them take the volcano apart, or build it , label all the layers, parts, etc. You could explore rock formation this way too, partly at least...
I think I'm trying to get across that it'd need to be something they can get their hands on, something not only visual, but manipulative as well. I find kids learn best if they engage in the material.
hope this helps

I have some teacher funnies.
SOME GOOD ONES.
I was at primary school and the class bitch's big brother told the dinner lady to eff off. The Head master told the mum to come in and she goes, don't you effing tell my son to eff off! Then she told that he has this medical condition that makes him swear a lot.
yes luv! Look who he's taken after!
My Colleague at the government work used to be a teacher. He was teaching and there was this boy who also told him to eff off. Then he brought the father in. He said, "Oh NO. My son would NEVER tell you to eff off. He didn't say F*** off. He said fluck off.
The first two are true.
A new teacher started off the class by asking the any of the to children to stand up if they thought they were stupid. Little Jonny stood. The teacher said, "do you think you are stupid, little Johnny? " then he said, "no miss, but I feel sorry for you standing there all alone"
