World Geography Projects

Geography goes beyond physical features of an area, and understanding it gives students the ability to connect with the history and development of a civilization. These activities allow students to utilize a variety of different ways to demonstrate their understanding of the history, geography, and important features of a particular location. Students can pretend to go on a virtual tour of a country and showcase different famous sites by choosing a character to be their guide! Students can create colorful and dazzling postcards and travel posters that highlight notable places. They can work on their mapping skills and label a map digitally or by hand. Students can also focus on the physical features of a location in a geography spider map, create a biography poster of a famous resident, or even make a spectacular infographic to advertise all of the incredible facts and statistics of their particular place. These activities are designed to be used at any grade level with any location, such as a city, state, country, or other famous site.
