This guide provides activities that have pupils actively involved, obtaining knowledge through cognitive, affective, or kinesthetic approaches to learning. The book is divided into three sections. Section 1, "Map Skills--Physical and Political Features", includes simulations, simulated review games, and problem-solving dilemmas to employ the use of map skills and enhance understanding of the physical and political features of the world. Section 2, "Humanity and the Environment," provides simulations, situations, and activities that demonstrate how humans interact with the geographic environment, with students at the center of active situations that call for participation. Section 3, "Regional Interaction," involves students in critical thinking so they can identify some of the interconnecting relationships that exist among the peoples of the planet. (EH)
