Discussion for Five Themes of Geography
SCOTT DAVIS (Teacher (K-12))
Straightforward lesson about the five themes of geography. I like the idea of students getting to pick their region to research. Having students create a concept map and display the five themes of geography for their region is a great way to assess their learning. How will students create this map? Will they have a rubric or some key elements they are required to include? How will they use technology to meet their expectations?
Catrin Barber (Teacher (K-12))
Great basic lesson using a concept map. An excellent idea to graphically display the 5 themes of geography. It is also a great way to introduce the subject for students who need to see the 5 themes in a more visual manner.
What program would it use? Is it on paper?
Melanie Broxterman (Teacher (K-12))
This lesson was an overview of the five themes of geography. The content contained a real-world connection and useful information for the future. The lesson allowed for research and discussion.
One thing I wold include would be the use of a collaborative forum to enhance the discussion of teh geographical areas and possible create the map/project online so that it would be easily collaborated on and shared.
