After teaching for 20+ years, I am still amazed at my student’s global awareness. It is hard for some students to understand how large the earth is, and where they are in it. You may use this activity the first week of school as an assessment.
Using this power point, the students will fill out the worksheet as best they can. You may be amazed at the information they do not know.
The flash cards can be used for practice with partners. Students arrange the flash cards from the most general (continent) to specific (house address). You may number the cards on the back so they can check themselves.
