This is a bundle of 2 products on “What is Geography?” One product is a Unit Lesson Plan and the other is a highly animated, colorful power point presentation that covers 17 vocabulary words. Each of the 22 presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.
The Unit Lesson Plan: What Is Geography, covers the following:
Middle School: Benchmarks:
SS.6.G.1.1 Use latitude and longitude coordinates to understand the relationship between people and places on the Earth.
SS.6.G.1.2 Analyze the purposes of map projections (political, physical, special purpose) and explain the applications of various types of maps.
SS.6.G.1.5 Use scale, cardinal, and intermediate directions, and estimation of distances between places on current and ancient maps of the world.

The second product is a vocabulary exercise, in a 22-slide power point format, that covers the entire unit on “What is Geography?”
The students are provided a list of the 17 vocabulary words within the presentation. Each vocabulary word is presented on a separate slide and contains the vocabulary word and its common definition.
The assignment for students is to review each of the 17 vocabulary words listed and to understand what they mean. This understanding will serve as a background for the student to have a greater understanding of geography and how its relationship affects people and places on the earth.
Sometimes vocabulary reviews can be a little stiff, so I have highly animated each of the 22 slides. They are also editable so you can feel free to adjust these slides as you need to.
Good luck and have fun with the presentation!
