Use these examples of projects created by students to inspire technology integration in your geography program.
Whether you have Chromebooks, iPads, PCs, or Macs in your classroom, you can use technology to help your students build powerful geography skills.
If your students are new to technology, have them begin by completing a map or other template.
Have students create maps to show the geographic features, regions, and economy of a state or region.
Read Me on the Map by Joan Sweeney to model your expectations for student work. Students can then use this book template to learn where they are located in relation to their town, state, country, and world.
Have students write postcards from different geographic locations, describing the cultural and environmental characteristics as well as how these affect life there.
Use this choice board to put students in charge of how they will demonstrate their learning.
