Thank you for visiting!
You've found the USA Part 2 Physical Features Geography Memorization Drawing Pack through Amanda Predmore's "Where in the World" Geography Series.
This guide is a GREAT addition to Part 1 - USA States & Capitals as it builds on that strong foundation. You can buy separately or bundle together and save $5!
This guide includes:
- 14 weekly lesson plans - 76 pages
- 72 physical features to memorize!
- Helpful tips on teaching
- Each lesson has five parts as follows:
1. "Where in the World?" This part has a view of the whole world to give context of where we are learning this week.
2. "A Closer Look!" This part is new! This is a summary map showing the current week's physical features being learned as well as past physical features already learned.
3. "Zoom Me In" An enlarged view of the area that the student is learning about, this is a reference sheet for the worksheet portion which is called "Now, Let's Trace, Color and Label!"
4. "Now, Let's Trace, Color and Label" This part is the same zoomed in view as part 3 however it is blank and is ready for the student to trace, color, and label. There are step by step instructions.
5. "Memorization through Drawing" This part is an accumulative worksheet allowing the student to work themselves up to drawing the United States with all of the states and capitals and physical features.
Before you know it, your student will have the USA more concretely memorized through drawing as well as many of its physical features.
If you are associated with Classical Conversations, you'll find that this guide will work for you on a week to week basis for the last 14 weeks of Cycle 3 geography. If you are wondering about the first 10 weeks where the student learns all of the USA States and capitals, well that is Part 1. Look for Part 1-USA States & Capitals in my shop.
If you are a home school parent or teacher, this will be perfect to teach your students how to draw the USA and the physical features through the three classical memorization techniques: repetition, intensity, and duration. And this guide is great at different levels of learning. Teach this to a 4 year old, no problem - teach it to a 14 year old - perfect!
Again, Thank you for visiting and I hope that this is a good addendum for your geography curriculum.
