This is a nine page set of notes for the first section of AP Human Geography (5 student pages, and 4 page answer key for teachers). The notes are a mixture of fill in the blank, tables and graphic organizers. They deal with two questions: 1. "What is Human Geography?" and 2. "How do geographers describe where things are located? ". The notes packet also has clear learning goals at the start of the lesson and a place to evaluate progress at the end of the lesson (including a space for students to write clarifying questions). This notes packet includes a timeline of early geography, all critical vocabulary to include maps and contemporary mapping tools. It covers the major types of projections (Mercator, Azimuthal, Robinson, etc.) as well as other mapping tools (GIS, GPS, Remote sensing, etc.). You can use this as guided notes during discussion, as a homework assignment or section it off for entrance or exit slips you could also incorporate it into an interactive notebook if you were using that in your Human Geography class.
