Geography of Europe Complete Unit
Teaching the Geography of Europe in a World Geography or other Social Studies course?
Need a complete resource on European Geography with ready to go unit plans and daily student activities?
This is a complete 5-10 day unit for the study of Europe in a Geography or other Social Studies course. The 160+ page unit is designed for middle or high school Geography, but could be adapted for a high level/advanced elementary class or any history course.
Scavenger hunts/task cards
All student materials
Unit covers the physical geography of Europe with mapping and atlas investigation activities, the human geography and a cultural study through the use of news articles from European outlets, a study of the regions of Europe through visiting centers, and an online interactive investigation on the Environment of Europe.
All activities are student-centered and reinforce higher-order thinking skills. Students will also practice basic geographic and social studies skills throughout the unit.
Reading and collaborative group assignments will help with student literacy and the unit will address most state and the national standards.
A teacher unit plan is provided with daily suggestions for bell ringers, homework, and exit slips.
An end of the unit assessment is included, requiring students to make decisions about the culture of Europe and to prioritize significant information to create an online collage with an essay option. Unit project could easily be adapted to use without online access.
Teacher directions are also provided, as well as ALL student and activity materials. Many of the student handouts include graphic organizers and wrap-up questions to help students better prepare for assessments.
