This unit includes a variety of activities to help your students understand the 5 Themes of Geography.
Included are the directions, notes, PowerPoint, handouts, and templates for each of the activities. Each document is in both Word format, as well as PDF. The PowerPoint was previously a separate purchase, but is now included in the Zip file.
If you are only interested in the PowerPoint and notes, these are available for purchase, independent of the unit.
The activities include the outline notes handout for the PowerPoint presentation, the PowerPoint presentation, directions and handouts for creating student collages (along with the score sheet), directions and handouts for the "Guess the Theme!" activity, directions and handouts for the "Mystery Place" activity, and directions, handouts, and score sheets for the "Travel Poster" activity.
PowerPoint presentation: Introduces the themes
Collages and "Guess the Theme": Students create a collage depicting one of the themes. Then they attempt to guess the themes of each collage.
"Mystery Place": Students use their knowledge, or research a location. They fill in clues for each theme and other students attempt to guess the location.
"Travel Poster": Students research a country and create a travel poster with facts from each theme. This is set up for Central America and the Caribbean, but can easily be adjusted.
It is not required that the students complete each of these, but they will help the students to better understand the 5 Themes of Geography.
