Geography--The Art and Science of Place. A Zephyr Press Learning Packet. Self-directed Study Units for Grades K-8.
Pierce, Alice
This learning packet presents geography units designed for self-directed study use by students in grades K-8. Instructions are given regarding how to use the materials. The five themes of geography provide a framework for analyzing questions about a place, how that place came to be the way it is, and how the place effects the people living there. Activities are designed to aid students in the development of skills needed to read, interpret, and create maps. Students practice techniques of geographic analysis using their own environment. Answer keys and bibliography are provided. (MM)
