This short 9 lesson unit will introduce students to physical geography. This unit introduces what geography is, teaches students about the different types of maps, mapping skills, provides opportunities to create maps (of Canada), and touches on regions.
This unit includes two case studies of regions (Canada's Arctic and the Middle East) which leads to some rich class discussions.
This unit also includes a quiz for assessment at the end as well as a map making assessment.
Simple to follow-each lesson 1-9 is saved with the lesson number so you simply use the powerpoints, handouts numbered for each lesson.
