This is an introductory powerpoint to the Geography of Europe that I created for my 9th grade Global Studies class. I used this powerpoint to begin our very long unit on European History. (I like to start off every unit with Geography and then build from there.)
This ppt includes photographs and has a few questions that the students can answer before they appear in the presentation. I included some photos from my two trips to Gibraltar and Germany in the presentation. You can use them, but I also recommend including your own if you have ever been to Europe. My students were more engaged in the lesson after learning that I had been to some of the places we discussed.
General Topics include:
-Peninsulas (Europe is a peninsula, and there are many smaller peninsula's located in Europe.)
-Coastline (jagged irregular coastline is good for trade and transportation.)
The powerpoint then goes on to describe different Geographic features and their effects.
Specific Geo Features include:
-Northern European Plain
The powerpoint then finishes by describing the general effects of Natural Resources and Rivers in Europe.
