Mysteries in World Geography: A Supplement Activity Book for Teachers of Seventh Grade World Geography in Hillsborough County Public Schools.
Baucom, Wayne; And Others
This activity book for teachers contains lessons designed to motivate students to master world geography. Questions on geographic concepts are formulated as mysteries for students to solve. The materials are written with seventh-grade students in mind, but could be adapted for use with other grade levels. Some of the lessons are more challenging than others. Each lesson has a student handout (with an illustration, data, and a central question) and a teacher factsheet (giving teachers the needed data and answers). The lessons are distributed over eight sections: (1) Introduction (6 mystery lessons); (2) Anglo-American Region (9 mystery lessons); (3) Latin American Region (10 mystery lessons); (4) Asia (13 mystery lessons); (5) European Region (8 mystery lessons); (6) African Region (12 mystery lessons); (7) The Middle Eastern Region (8 mystery lessons); and (8) Australia and New Zealand (3 mystery lessons).
