This is a complete 10+ day unit for the study of Asia in a Geography or other Social Studies course.
Includes a unit/lesson plan, student-centered activities, learning centers, online interactives, unit study guide and test, review games, all student materials, and more.
Unit covers the physical geography of Asia with mapping and atlas investigation activities, the human geography and a cultural study through the use of news articles from Asian outlets, a study of the regions of Asia through visiting centers or Walking Tour, a response group activity on the Challenges of Asia, and an online interactive collage assignment, and so much more.
All activities are student-centered and require higher-order thinking skills. Students will also practice basic geographic and social studies skills throughout the unit. Reading and collaborative group assignments will help with student literacy and the unit will address most state and the national standards.
A teacher unit plan is provided with daily suggestions for bell ringers, homework, and exit slips.
An end of the unit assessment is included, requiring students to make decisions about the culture of Asia and to prioritize significant information to create an online collage with an essay option. Unit project could easily be adapted to use without online access.
A complete Unit Test is also included with multiple choice, response, and mapping. A study guide accompanies the test for student preparation. Answer key is provided at the end of the unit test for multiple choice.
Teacher directions are also provided, as well as ALL student and activity materials. Many of the student handouts include graphic organizers and wrap-up questions to help students better prepare for assessments.
