Geography can be a difficult subject to teach in a way that keeps your students engaged and on-task. Traditional worksheets can feel dry and tedious, and students tend to rush through them just to have them finished. Do you want to make learning geography fun, meaningful, and challenging for your upper elementary school students?
I have spent several years teaching geography to young students. It took many attempts to find the right assignments to teach important skills like absolute location (latitude and longitude), map tools like map scale and cardinal directions, and cultural geography traits that shape and define people's lives around the world.
I learned to write geography lessons that would inspire and encourage students to get excited about geography. These resources are classroom-tested and educator-approved with some GREAT feedback responses.
For a limited time, I have bundled my ten best geography lessons into this mega-packet!
These resources are also diverse enough to ensure that you will meet many different levels of Bloom's Taxonomy while ensuring that your students will not grow bored with the lessons.
Check my feedback for each product to see what other educators are saying. Download the preview file to see a handful of pages in the bundle.
