Geography--Study and teaching (Elementary);
This lesson is the first lesson introducing culture for each of the regions that will be taught throughout the year. For this lesson we will introduce culture to the students by first of all creating a student friendly definition. Then the students read several informational books for them to create a graphic organizer for each of the cultures that they read about.(#1) The students then do a compare and contrast organizer to compare these cultures.(#2) The final part of the lesson is that the students use this organizer to write an opinion paper with evidence to justify their opinion.(#3) We will continue to do this after each region, writing an opinion paper with evidence which will include using linking words with a clear opening and conclusion.
