Geography--Study and teaching (Middle school);
Students will participate in a geography lesson in which they will find the countries on a map in which 3 articles of their clothing came from. Then, students will explore Google Earth’s website and type the name of their country (and then the largest city of that country) in and take a virtual field-trip to see what that country looks like. Finally, students will choose one of those countries to make a T-Chart comparing and contrasting life there to life in their town in the USA.
