Learning Objectives

  • Be able to fluently use these terms: relative location, regions, spatial perspective, special purpose maps, topography, and human and physical characteristics of place.
  • Identify questions geographers ask in examining the United States (e.g. Where it is? What is it like there? How is it connected to other places?)
  • Use geographic tools and technologies, stories, songs, and pictures to answer geographic questions about the United States.


As our geography unit comes to an end, the only thing left to do is show off what we know!


We are going to review everything we have covered through out the entire unit through group presentation. We will have ample class time to create projects that describe the geography of the United States including relative location, physical characteristics, human characteristics, two ways to divide the country into regions and a descriptions of at least one specific region.
