This 5-9 day customizable unit includes an activity for each theme of geography, review activity, and summative assessment. It is designed as a first unit of the year activity and incorporates some "get to know you" activities, as well as offers teachers the opportunity to circulate and offer individual assistance to students.
Each lesson includes a warm up, notes, activity, and closure. There are detailed instructions provided to guide teachers through the delivery. Student FAQ, and ideas for differentiating instruction for struggling and advanced learners are also included.
The unit focuses on map and writing skills, and making personal connections with the content.
The summative assessment is a geography autobiography which includes an option for a single day assessment session, or a several day writing process exercise. Outlines, rubrics, and writing process guidance are included. The accompanying PowerPoint
