Mapping My World ~ Unit One ~ First Quarter
Students will describe the location of their community, state, and country on a map. They will learn how to draw these places on a map. They will further learn how to identify different landforms, explain why population distribution patterns are the way they are, and describe and discuss different types of boundaries that separate people and places.
