Do you have a basic world geography packet? I am teaching a world history class for the first time and my student are really struggling with the geography. I want to spend about a week and half on geography, but I don't know where to start.

I am not sure if I have a basic world geography packet, but I have my entire World Geography/Mapping Collection on TPT at:

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/A-Whole-Year-of-Geography-Lesson-Plans-and-Mapping-Activities-580404.

The cost is $24 and it will cover all the basics if you have atlases within your classroom. Since everything is in "Word", it is really easy to modify for your classroom/atlases.

Thanks,

I haven’t found any great websites for the 1970s-early 1990s on the Cold War. I have included list of webquest and worksheets that somewhat fit that time period. I would highly recommend my Cuban Missile Crisis Webquest and Vietnam War Lesson Plan Collection. Also if you are teaching about the Persian Gulf War, my Gulf War Video Webquest is a simple lesson plan that keeps students engaged.

Thanks for the support,

If you buy my One Year of World History, American History, and Geography Worksheets/Webquests, I will e-mail you the approximately 40 primary sources and webquests that I have created since my last update on January 1, 2014. This summer I am going to update everything in the collection into zipped folders. If you buy the collection, you will get a notice of the update and my future lesson plans will also be added to the collection for free. Once you buy the collection please e-mail me at tpthistorywizard@gmail.com and I will send you all of my new webquests and primary sources created since January 1st.

Edgar F. re: India Lesson Plan Bundle (2 Lesson Plans)
Hello,

I think this a great product, which is the reason that I bought it. My concern is that some of the ads on the website that go with the lessons are not appropriate for my 4th graders. When I first looked at the webpage, there was an ad for a video game with the female avitars with large breasts flopping around. I know that you earn money with this link, but is there any way that you can take it off? It took me three times to refresh the screen before it wet away. When I use this lesson I will use the Word, PPT, or Adobe files. (Thank you for creating those links.)

History Wizard   (TpT Seller)
Thanks for the question. I did not create the webpage and receive no profit from the advertisements. The advertisements by Google are based on search engine history, like video games. I just went to the website and for me Google Play came up, and on my wife's computer, Crate & Barrel came up. I would check the websites on school computers and see what comes up for ads. Usually, I have no problems with the Mr. Donn websites, however one time with my 7th graders several students got the large breasted avatars on their screens. I confronted the issue and had student close the advertisements. However, with 4th graders I understand how this could be a bigger issue. Something else you can do to ensure that the adware does not come up with inappropriate ads is to clear your 'cookies' that track web activity. The way to do this differs depending on what browser you have and their respective websites will have directions on how to do so.

Thanks,

I have no idea why it is not working for you. All the files are there and it works fine when I download it. I would never rip anyone off. I have had over 30 people buy the collection and it has received very positive reviews. I suggest checking over your computer, you need Word. I would be happy to e-mail all of the lesson plans to you today, if you send me your e-mail address. I will help in anyway I can.

I just got done checking the Texas Geography Standards for high school at:

My collection will cover some of the standards, but Texas has very specific standards for high school. My collection is a great start for helping any teacher cover geography basics and mapping of the major countries, physical features, and historical locations of the world.

I apologize over any confusion over an answer key. Besides the first couple of questions, all of the students’ answers will be different. They just need to list out four key facts for each section of the webquest. I use the webquest for discussion and give students points for completion.

Silly, but I use to live in Shakopee, back in the early 70s. I went to Pearson and the two years I was there, we chose the school nickname as Pearson Pencil Pushers. Mr. Kirshbaum or Kirshmeir... was my teacher for Social Studies.

Sorry to bother you - I'm looking forward to using the ancient to modern indea web quest.

Just to be helpful - All the same questions are on there, the numbering is just off. Also, on the answer key the link to click is missing between #21 & #22 (not that it is a big deal), and, again, the link is incorrect on question #26 of the student page (actually #21). It should be Grave Goods - I think. I had my class figure it out. Like, I said.... they love these assignments!

Please accept my apologizes. I am very sorry about the typos. The numbering must have changed when I reposted it last month. If you would be willing to give me your e-mail I will attach the changes I made tonight and I will also attach one other lesson plan under $6.00 of your choice for free. Otherwise, I will post the Daily Life in Egypt Webquest for free on Friday, so you can download it.

I have purchased your ancient civilization web quests. There is a problem with the Egypt one. The copy for the kids is different than the answer key you provide. The kids version starts at number 6 and the questions are not the same as on the answer key. There is also a mistake with #26 on the student copy. I think they should go to Grave Goods instead of Games/Activities. Is there anyway you can fix this and send me a copy?

I bought the Ancient Mesopotamia webquest first and the kids loved it. Then I purchased the whole set.
