This geography unit was created to compliment Georgia Performance Standard SS4G1. It includes an interactive PPT lesson that will require about 3 days to complete. There are structured notes to accompany the PPT lesson to keep the students engaged as the teacher guides the lesson. I have also included a separate study guide that the students can complete in small groups using their structured notes. A mapping activity gives the students hands-on experience locating important physical and man-made features on a United States map. This activity works great as a partner activity or as an individual formative assessment. It can be blown up and laminated for re-use with dry erase markers through out the year to review. A unit test is provided to help the teacher gauge the students' understanding.
