Geography Dictionaries

Found in: language arts; social studies; vocabulary

To help my students learn geography vocabulary terms, I have them create their own Illustrated Geography Dictionary. Students find pictures in magazines to illustrate their geography vocabulary terms. National Geographic magazines work very well for this. They clip out a picture, paste it on 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 can draw the geographic feature instead. To receive an A on this project, they must have 20-25 terms. Those that know a second language can also include foreign terms in their dictionaries.
