The 5 Themes of Geography are useful tools for analyzing locations and human interaction with geographic features. Provide this handout to students for use as a reference when engaging activities involving the themes. The handout’s “clue words” are in-text signals some students may find helpful when connecting content to themes. These words can also serve as the basis for a micro-lesson on using context clues when analyzing geographic information.
This handout is part of a larger work entitled Washington, D.C. and The Five Themes of Geography available through Teachers Pay Teachers.
