Description: A brief lesson plan model to integrate local geography and history as outlined in the Oklahoma Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) and the National Geography Standards.
Any town or city has a wealth of geography and history resources to explore past, present and future preservation. These activities will spark an interest in and perpetuate the memories of a community by discovering its rich heritage. This lesson will establish the “whys” of location patterns (Why is this town here?). Many geographic questions can be answered. Students will form generalizations and draw conclusions from data collected and compiled.
