This unit is designed to give 9th grade World Geography students a foundational understanding of physical geography, then have the students apply that knowledge to explore the essential questions: “How does the physical world shape societies?” and “In what ways does the physical geography of a region limit or enhance a society?”. Students will investigate physical features, extreme weather, the four spheres, climate zones, and climate regions to understand the diversity of the earth’s geography. This unit will culminate in students creating their own society based on the assignment of random physical features, latitude, and extreme weather. For this summative assessment, students must apply their knowledge to evaluate their imagined society’s relationship to the landscape they inhabit.
