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?

Technical Remarks:

No issues.

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.

Technical Remarks:

What program would it use?  Is it on paper?

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.
