Place Project & The 5 Themes of Geography Project

Over the last month, students worked with a partner on 2 projects: the first was to create a slide show presentation on an assigned city in the United States, the second was to create a project of your choosing about the 5 themes of geography on one continent. For both projects, students must make sure their slide show or poster follows the directions and rubric we went over in class. I have attached the project directions and the rubric for those who need it.

If you still need to turn in one of your projects, please share it with me or email it to me as soon as you are done. They MUST be turned in before MARCH 27th because that is when this card marking ends (after that it will be a zero forever). Share it with: Mandy Thomas thomasm1@dearbornschools.org

5 Themes of Geography Project- RUBRIC: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vJZA3uU3LXXX3Pnne2FhFQyShY1HdS5ke4mRo3cZKZo/edit?usp=sharing

5 Themes Project Directions:

  • Location: Find the absolute and relative location of your continent
  • Place: Give examples of 4 physical characteristics (specific names of landforms) and 4 human characteristics (specific languages or religions) found on your continent.
  • HEI: Give specific examples of how people DEPEND on the land around them on your continent, how people MODIFY the land on your continent, and how people ADAPT to the land on your continent.
  • Movement: Give specific examples of how/what things move on your continent (goods, people and ideas). For example, North America imports cars from Japan.
  • Region: Give examples of 3 regions on your continents (2 or more places with one thing in common). For example, Dearborn and Detroit are a region because they both speak English. Or Mississippi and Louisiana are a region because they share the Mississippi River.

REMEMBER: THIS CARD MARKING ENDS ON MARCH 27TH, SO ALL MISSING WORK MUST BE TURNED IN BEFORE THAT DATE!
