In an effort to help my students learn geography vocabulary terms, I have them create their own “Illustrated Geography Dictionary.” Students find pictures in magazines that illustrate their geography vocabulary terms. National Geographic magazines work very well for this. They clip out the pictures, paste one picture onto a sheet of paper and write the term with its definition under the illustration. If students cannot find an illustration of a term in a magazine, they may draw the geographic feature instead. I usually assign 20-25 terms in order to receive an A on this project. Those that know a second language can also include the foreign term in their dictionaries.
