In my class, the students were introduced to these terms with a flipchart that I created. They can use their textbooks or atlases to find the information on the studyguide. It is not specific to any particular textbook series. As students became more comfortable with these terms, I introduced the "Creative Countries" project. It was a HUGE success!!
