Product Description
Tired of teaching vocabulary the same way for every social studies unit? This is your solution!

This is an original song set to the tune of "Eye of the Tiger" written to help students remember key geography vocabulary. Mnemonic devices are vital for successfully teaching social studies vocabulary, and songs can be a valuable resource for you in the classroom. This song is a fun, easy way for the students to learn critical vocabulary, such as longitude, latitude, meridians, parallels, physical map, political map, north, south, east, west, and more! Plus, it's a really fun lesson to teach!

Activity Suggestion: Teach the lyrics to the students verse by verse, and allow the students to come up with hand motions to do along with the song. This involves the students' whole brain in the activity and helps them better connect the material to their memory.

I have used this song to teach an ancient history class and a US history class.
