I never thought I'd say this, but I'm so excited about geography! I'm sort of ashamed to admit that geography has always been one of those units that I only taught because it was in my standards. I have certainly always believed that it is important, but I've always had a difficult time making it fun for my students. I finally found a way to be excited about geography with this geography enrichment project, where students complete three different activities from a choice board. Each of the choices on the choice board are from the three highest levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (analysis, synthesis, and evaluation). I've compiled everything you may need for the unit together including teacher directions, check points to ensure students' progress, independent study contract, daily work log, choice board, student directions for each task, and a rubric. You can get this geography project here!
