This Ontario grade 8 geography unit looks at human settlement patterns. There are 13 lessons that would likely be a month or more of geography depending how much time per week is devoted to geography.
The unit is laid out with easy to use and follow powerpoint slides that show images, maps, diagrams and have all the links to video clips that you would need. Each lesson also includes rich, open-ended discussion questions that could spark class discussion or form the basis of an independent writing assignment.
The unit has a population pyramid assessment in the middle of the unit and comes with a larger culminating task that allows for student choice and creativity. Exemplars, outlines and rubrics for the project are included.
There are also three unit tests for this unit. A long, a shorter and a modified test that you can decide which to use.
