Geography in the Middle School: A Compendium of Lesson Plans for Social Studies and Other Subject Areas.
Maryland Geographic Alliance, Baltimore.
The geography lesson plans included in this packet of materials were prepared for middle school students. Lessons are divided into three categories according to the present school social studies curriculum: world cultures, United States history, and interdisciplinary focus. The lesson plans incorporate the five fundamental themes of location, place, human/environmental interaction, movement, and region. They are designed to provide the student with the skills necessary to prepare maps, tables, graphs, and an organized, coherrent written or oral presentation. In addition, the lessons teach interpretation of trends portrayed on a line graph and the analysis of the relationships between information on two or more maps. The students also learn to develop and test hypotheses and make geographic generalizations. Maps, graphs, charts, and other reproducible visual aids are included. (NL)
