A basic introduction to geography!
These are the notes that I use to introduce students to geography. I refer to the information in these files throughout the school year. It includes introductory information on what geography is, why we study geography, and basic geography vocabulary and concepts.
This file includes an editable Word file with student and teacher copies of the notes, and the PowerPoint presentation that I use with these notes. Student notes include blanks that students fill in as you go through the presentation.
*I have personalized these notes for my students using familiar locations/cities. Because this is an editable file, feel free to customize to suit your students' needs.
These notes can be done all in one class period, or broken into sections. I usually break these notes up and use a small section as an intro to a lesson for the day.
