A Geography Lesson

Fewer and fewer people have a strong grasp of world geography, but this activity helps high schoolers understand geopolitics by creating their own original historical map. The activity requires selecting a country from the list provided, conducting research from designated sources, and depicting an event, relationship, geopolitical circumstance, or economic-based concept in an original map. The map is the final assessment, however no rubric is provided. While the lesson calls for two class periods, students may benefit from additional time.

Lesson Planet helps me with finding lesson plans that work. As a student teacher, my professors have told me not to try and recreate the wheel, use what is out there that works! Lesson Planet helps me to find ideas that I can tweak so they follow our state standards.
