Magazine Geography: Using Magazine Pictures To Enhance Social Studies Instruction.
Fitzhugh, William P.
This lesson focuses on student use of magazine pictures of a region in Australia to understand the region and discover more about it. The students begin by mental mapping of the area to discover what they already know, then proceed to explore the pictures for verification or for new ideas which they had not considered previously. This is an integrated activity including reading, language arts, and social studies time. Webbing also may be used to graphically organize student ideas. The graphic organizers are used throughout the unit. A Venn diagram also could be used to consider the similarities of the Australian region with other areas the students have studied. (EH)
