This project makes a great way to begin a geography class or unit. The project does require pre-teaching of the 5 Themes of Geography. Students will answer questions to reflect on how the 5 Themes show up in their own community. Then students will free draw a map of their community, including places that are important to their lives. Finally, students will choose the theme that they believe impacts their life the most and write a short structured paragraph in the provided organizer.
