PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is one that I used with my 7th graders in gaining a better understanding of the 5 Themes of Geography. I put the students into groups of 3 or 4 and assigned the various storybooks listed below (based on reading level), having the students begin first by reading through the attached document, and then the storybook. Students found much joy in reading through the storybooks that they read so long ago, this time through the lens of a geographer, working with the 5 Themes of Geography.

This activity is a great way to reinforce the 5 Themes of Geography after the definitions/meanings have been taught.
