This is an exciting worksheet that delves into the five themes of geography!!
Aim: Why is it important to know about geography when it comes to Social Studies?
SWBAT: The learner will be able to identify the five themes of geography by watching a video clip, participating in a think pair share and filling in guided questions.
Do Now Activity: Students will be required to answer the question what does geography mean to them. This will foster students ability to activate critical thinkings skills as well as promote a meaningful discussion to students background knowledge.
Video Clip Activity: Typically in my classes, students will either move into a pair or work by themselves to answer guided reading questions from video clips. As each teachers classes are different, please feel free to modify and adjust to your teaching styles and classes abilities. This is one my FAVORITE videos on geography. Its a great RAP video that discusses the five themes of geography. Before going over the video clip, I will ask students to read the questions ahead of time so they are setting their expectations for learning and are prepared for the video. As the video is being played, students will be required to fill in guided questions about the five themes of geography. The teacher can pause throughout the video clip depending on students ability and discuss important concepts.
Independent practice: At this point, students should have a good idea about what the five themes of geography are. Therefore, students will fill in guided questions that have real world application questions to further enrich their learning experience.
Exit Ticket: Students will fill in a graphic organizer by correctly identify the five themes of geography.
