Intro to Human Geography

Author: Lauren Windle

To simply introduce key concepts regarding Human Geography for my sixth grade geography class: what is human geography? what is place & how does it influence people? what is globalisation?

Students will engage in the ppt presentation, take notes on the accompanying worksheet, and complete the fast food case study to help my students understand the somewhat complicated idea of globalisation (for sixth graders)
