Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Geography

Description: 

Students will learn about their community through studying and creating maps. They will also learn about the natural and human characteristics of their community and write brochures to convince people to visit their community.

Learning Targets: 
Students will be able to use maps to describe the spatial organization of the local community by applying concepts including relative location and using distance, direction and scale.
Students will be able to construct maps of the local community that contain symbols, labels, and legends denoting human and natural characteristics of place.
Students will be able to describe how the local community is part of a larger region (e.g., county, metropolitan area, state).
Students will be able to describe land use in the community (e.g., where people live, where services are provided, where products are made).
