This resource was designed specifically around the 2018-2019 Tennessee State Standards, but will be useful for any teacher teaching physical features.
The Third Grade Social Studies Standards are broken into two parts. Part One is Geography and Economics and Part Two is Early American and Tennessee History. This power point can be used many different ways to cover part one about geography.
I have included all of the Third Grade Geography Standards following the Notes for Teachers' pages. This resource can certainly be used in other states with different standards.
There are a few different ways to use this resource. I have listed a few ways my teammates and I use it and plans we have for future ideas.
*Build teacher background knowledge.
*Show during warm up time for introduction.
*Give students, partners, or small groups a physical feature to research.
*Highlight one physical feature every fews days or week.
*Virtual travel to different parts of the world every few days or week to learn about.
*Use as a review or refresher.
*Use as exit tickets for quick assessment.
