The following is a creative way to assess your students knowledge of basic geography by allowing them to create their own "Land of ________ (they fill-in the blank with a theme to their land) by applying the terms and main ideas of both physical and human geography. They are asked to create rough draft in which they use aspects of physical and human geography (as well as culture) to create their "Land of.........".
Once they have their rough draft complete, using a 24x24 sheet of paper they design, draw, and label all the pieces of physical and human geography they were asked to complete in their rough draft.
Great and fun assessment tool for all ages!! (I've used this for both Middle School and High School students)
