This 41 slide PowerPoint is an interactive overview of the Five Themes of Geography. The five themes are the most basic units used in social studies to classify geographic elements. Most, if not all of what is studied in social studies falls into one of these five categories.
The PowerPoint takes students through each of the five themes in words as well as pictures. Students will be presented with each theme and shown visual representations to help connect the dots. For the teacher, each slide contains notes to help guide the teacher’s dialogue and provide questions to aid in engaging students in the discussion of the themes. This is not just students copying words down from a slide! It is an engaging and interactive look at the themes of geography that constantly requires verbal input from the students.
The PowerPoint also contains an assignment at the end that will give students the opportunity to showcase their understanding and comprehension of the themes through a writing assignment. Good Luck!
