Need a complete unit
for teaching the Geography of Asia
This is a complete 10+ day unit
for the study of Asia
in a Geography or other Social Studies course.
A unit/lesson plan
Unit study guide and test
All student materials
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.
