This unit goes along with Georgia Social Studies standards for 6th grade. I like for my students to get to investigate about geography around the world instead of me giving them the information. Students will not only look at the actual location of countries, but other aspects of the country as well. This unit should take about 2 weeks, based on a 55 minute class time. The PDF file includes a map to label, three versions of a quiz (one I use with IEP students that has a word bank, and one with matching letters), and a project with rubric. I have also included student examples. The students will have their choice between a brochure, hand created or Microsoft Publisher, or they can create a glogster. Glogster is an online program that allows them to create an interactive poster. I allow the students to present their glogsters on my active board, which allows students to present information in an interactive way. If they decide to choice the brochure option, we print them out, and I give the class small post-its to go around and post any interesting things they learned or feedback in general.
