ELEMENTARY LEVEL
  • China Through Mapping [Annenberg Media "Social Studies In Action" Lesson Plan and Video]
    This effective K-2 unit integrates world geography with the study of Chinese culture and history. Aspects of it can be adapted for use at higher grade levels.
MIDDLE SCHOOL
  • What is Asia? [National Geographic]
    For grades 6-8. All too often, teachers and students accept regions as natural phenomena without considering how descriptive names such as "Asia," "East Asia," "Far East," "Orient," etc. came to be. The mental maps that gave shape to these descriptors of areas are clearly rooted in changing historical perceptions. This lesson plan helps students identify the various regions in Asia at different historical periods, helping them understand the factors employed in determining what is considered a "region."

  • Mental Mapping [National Geographic]
    For grades 7-12. In this lesson students are expected to gain an understanding of the concept of mental mapping and construct maps using their own mental maps of places where they would like to live.
HIGH SCHOOL
