Product Description
Geography Map Skills Unit with Lapbook or interactive notebook pages! A complete unit for teaching about basic map skills. Over 70 pages!

This Geography Map Skills Unit includes an 8--page informational text. This complex text will provide your students with information about the purpose of geography, continents and oceans, the differences between maps and globes, part of a map, and types of maps.

The informational text is perfect for meeting your Common Core Reading Standards!! I wrote this Geography Map Skills Unit because I couldn't find anything appropriate for my third-graders! All of the other map skills units (and even our social studies textbook!) were too simple, and didn't meet the new demands of the Common Core for informational text. This text will provide your students with a complex, rigorous text, but the text features and other aspects will allow your third, fourth, and fifth grade students to be successful in reading and comprehending the information. If you are teaching social studies without a textbook, you need this unit!

The Geography Map Skills Unit also includes a unit test and a study guide. Answer keys are included.

As your students read and learn about geography, this Geography Map Skills Unit gives your students two different options to show and practice what they have learned. They can complete 12 different foldable pieces to make a lapbook about geography, or use the pieces in their interactive social studies notebook. These pieces are great for formative assessment as you work through the unit.
