This unit goes along with Georgia Social Studies standards for 6th grade. I like for my students to get to investigate about geography around the world instead of me giving them the information. Students will not only look at the actual location of countries, but other aspects of the country as well. This unit should take about 2 weeks, based on a 55 minute class time. The PDF file includes a map to label, two versions of a quiz (one I use with IEP students that has a word bank), and an interactive map project with rubric. With the interactive map, I had included step by step instructions for the students to use Microsoft Excel. I allow the students to present their maps on my active board, which allows students to present information in an interactive way.
