Geography Skills


Found In: back to school; charts, maps, & graph skills; social studies

In the first week of class, my students sketch the world on 11x17 inch paper. They can use only their existing knowledge of world geography. I hide all maps in the classroom, and they must label any country, state, city, region, or physical feature they know. Then, I put these away until the last week of the course. At this time, they repeat the assignment and compare how much of the world they knew then and how much they know now. Most are amazed at how their world has changed!
