How does a physical feature impact world
How have rivers, lakes, seas, oceans,
mountains, deserts, plateaus and coastlines
positively and negatively influenced the
development of ancient civilizations?
How did people use the physical features
available to them to their advantage in
order to survive, develop and expand?
Lesson – Students will work with a partner to
create a Poster on one of the following
physical features (rivers, mountains, deserts,
oceans, seas, islands, straits, rainforests, plains,
plateaus, wetlands, coastlines, peninsulas).
The poster should include a title, picture of
the physical feature, definition of feature, 3-4
places where that feature can be found in the
world and advantages and disadvantages of
that feature. Students will take part in a
museum walk in order to compare and contrast
the advantages and disadvantages of each
physical feature. At each physical feature,
students will complete the sentence stem
“_________________ is similar/different from
a ___________________ because…” The
first blank should be the feature of the poster
created by the student answering the question
stem. The second blank should be the feature
found on the poster. Students can write their
stem on a paper hanging next to the poster and
on their own personal note sheet. In your
group discussion after the activity, students
can discuss which features shared the most
similarities vs which features were the most
different. Students will also be provided
Cornell Notes to complete during the museum

******Unit Test 13 corrections are due on Tuesday, May 9th.  We are starting the prep sessions for our EOG testing, next week.  Each student will receive ONE Student Booklet  which we will use to analyze the objectives that Grade 6 student will need show mastery. Each packet will contain the major topics for both calculator active and inactive portions of the EOG. Formulas will also be suggested for review.  It is important that this packet has been printed for your student with a limited budget in mind, so it will not be possible for me to make a copy if misplaced.   Please have your student keep it secure in binder.  Thank you.
