Themes of Geography
Mrs. Palladino’s 5th grade class has been exploring the “5 Themes of Geography: Location, Place, Regions, Movement, and Human Environment Interaction” during our Social Studies lessons. The students are using their new laptops to research our classroom’s assigned, global country of Columbia. This “technology field trip” is introducing valid, internet research techniques to the students. By creating a brochure, students are focusing on the geography of Columbia and comparing the five researched themes to that of the United States.
