World History-Geography

This page will have materials for world geography and history classes

(because geography is an analytical perspective,
not just a list of the places and conditions
that make up the “stage” for the “actors”
who perform the “drama” of history).

Here are a few sample sets:

 

PS. You can also find a lot of world geography/history maps at the Michigan Geographic Alliance website:

https://www.cmich.edu/colleges/cst/MGA/Pages/World-Regional-Geography-Using-Big-Ideas.aspx

While you are on that site, check out a very popular graphic organizer called the GeoHistoGram.

(Students can locate the anchor points photos listed above on this graphic organizer
as a recurring activity to put other events into perspective relative to the anchor points.)
