This geography unit is written to follow the gradual release model. You will teach the geography concepts. Then, students will get to practice the concepts as a class or in groups. Then, they will complete independent geography activities designed for 2nd-4th grade students.
This is a complete unit. Everything you need to cover your geography standards is inside. The lesson plans are detailed, but give you flexibility to add, adjust, or remove activities depending on the time you have to complete each lesson. The unit includes more than you need for students to grasp each concept.
