Over the past few weeks, the students have been introduced to the Geography unit of study, "World Human Patterns". The focus will be examining and understanding how patterns in human geography affect people around the world.
We started the unit with a focus on recognizing community patterns and the different types of communities that exist. The pictures below show a lesson where students were asked to bring in various photos that represent each community. Then, they were randomly handed out to them and they were to decide under which community each photo belonged and providing a rationale for their choice by discussing characteristics of each community. Finally, students were asked to come up to the boards and write the advantages and disadvantages of living in each community.
