Product Description
Using interactive notebooks in Social Studies has been my go-to for a long time, and I was always looking for ways to incorporate what we were learning in our Social Studies notebooks with writing. With this bundle, you can use interactive notebooks AND have engaging writing prompts that correspond to what students are learning in Social Studies!

You will receive both the Geography Interactive Notebook unit AND the Geography Writing Prompts unit! Buying these two resources together will give you a discount compared to buying them separately.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The 92 page Geography packet is my complete Geography unit. It is a stand-alone unit, so it DOES NOT require a text book. The activities in this unit include the following items:

INTRO AND VOCABULARY
-KWL Chart
-Unit Title Pages
-Defining Vocabulary Mini-Book
-Vocabulary BINGO Board
-Vocabulary Matching Cards and Pockets

This unit is broken down into the five themes of Geography. These themes include:

Location
-"Location: Where Are We?" mini-book and foldable activity
-Movable compass activity

Place
-"Place: How are Places Different?" mini-book and foldable activity
-Landforms reading passage and foldable activity
-Place Descriptions activity
-Continents of the World reading passage and activity

Human-Environment Interaction
-"Human-Environment Interaction" mini-book and foldable activity
-Tongass National Forest reading passage and activity

Movement
-"Movement: How Did We Get Here?" mini-book and foldable activity
-Movement of Goods activity

Regions
-"Regions: How Are Places Grouped Together?" mini-book and foldable activity
-Regions of the United States reading passages and activity
-Learning About the States activities

There is also an introductory "What is Geography?" mini-book and foldable activity, as well as two wrap-up activities.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Each mini-book is topic specific, and written for my fifth graders, however, I believe it can be used in grades 4th-6th. For each mini-book, there is a coordinating activity that can be added to a notebook. Reading the mini-book, then completing an activity helps cement the newly acquired knowledge into the minds of students!

--------------------------------------------------------------------

With the Geography Writing Prompts unit, you will find four different types of writing prompts for students. This unit correlates with my Geography Interactive Notebook Unit, so each prompt is about a different idea introduced in the mini-books. You do not have to use my notebooking unit with this product, but it will make it flow more smoothly!

These writing prompts cover four different writing types:
-Description
-Opinion
-Informational
-Fictional Narrative

Your students will be writing for each of these writing genres by focusing on topics like landforms, place, the movement of people, and how humans interact with the environment.

Each writing prompt includes the following:
-A detailed teacher directions page
-Graphic organizers
-A rough draft page with a student checklist
-Lined, decorative writing paper
-Two basic rubrics to choose from that feature a self-assessment to be completed by students and a teacher assessment along with a space for teacher comments.


These writing prompts are engaging and thought provoking and will definitely help your students become geography masters!

**The writing unit does not include individual lessons for teaching writing. These are writing projects students can complete, and you can supplement with lessons about writing dialogue, transition words, writing a powerful conclusion, etc.**
