Product Description
Updated in March 2013, this adds 14 new terms to the original 12 landforms and 20 geography concept terms made visually MEMORABLE to our students. The idea is to make it so that when kids see one of these terms in print on a test or in a text, they automatically SEE the picture. I started doing this out of frustration that my kids could not keep "urban" and "rural" straight. I created "visual vocabulary" for those two terms and it was almost magical how they then remembered those terms. So I looked for more terms with which I could do the same. I print these off and make them into a word wall. The terms are: isthmus, mesa, cape, tributary, archipelago, strait, canyon, cliff, atoll, delta, mouth, peninsula, landlocked, desertification, rural, urban, urbanization, suburban, industrialized, Gross Domestic Product, Euro, ban, evidence, partition, arable land, drought, deforestation, absolute location, import, export, monarchy, mosque, hajj, push factors (of migration), pull factors (of migration), genocide, elevation, latitude, longitude, monsoons, cyclone, tsunami, fossil fuels, petroleum, topographic map, and erosion.
