PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Why Study Geography? This lesson has been completely updated for 2016!!! I am including the new lesson, and keeping the old if anyone still wants to use it.


Geography is important! But do your kids think so? This is a great lesson to start off the year as you examine the topic “Why Study Geography?” This lesson begins by getting students out of their seat with a 4 Corner Debate. Your students will then take notes on pop-up expert as they study geography. The lesson concludes with task cards and a spectrum, where they have to defend their thinking.

When you purchase this lesson, you will receive:

-A detailed lesson plan

This lesson will benefit all your students as you provide multiple opportunities to debate and discuss the topic.
