Take your study of Geographic Features step further by students create newspapers about the features of these geographic landmarks! I have found that writing is less intimidating for students when it is broken into smaller chunks and it “looks” different. Thus, the idea for Social Studies topic based “newspapers” where students are given the role of reporter about the subject being taught. The standards and essential questions are a part of each newspaper so that students know exactly what information to include. There is a portion for a descriptive picture and a short caption for each essential question. These are excellent for review! If you like these, check out my other Geographic Features products!
