The activities include:
1. "What is Geography?" & "Physical vs. Cultural Geography" - with a focus on vocabulary terms and examples
2. Group Activity - Finding Physical & Cultural Geography in a Children's Book
3. My Favorite Place Writing Response
The product includes the handouts, teacher tips, answer key and a rubric!
By writing, students will strengthen their skills in the following categories:
(From the Common Core)
✓ Write narratives to develop real experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details and well-structured event sequences.
✓ Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose and audience.
✓ Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting or trying a new approach
