This is a power point for Chapter 1, Sections 1-3 in the Holt McDougal Text Eastern World for 7th Grade. It is aligned with the notes I give students (taken from the chapter and soon to be available.) and the Journal topics I use.(See Syllabus--also available on TPT) For those not using the Eastern World book, it covers the following topics: What is Geography?, How we look at the world, the Geographer's tools, The Five Themes of Geography, The Six Essential Elements of Geography, and the Branches of Geography. If you have questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! Note: Display pictures have a different font than actual Powerpoint due to the difference between ppt (display) and pptx (actual).
