11 Resources for Geography Awareness Week 2011

Next week is Geography Awareness Week. For this year’s Geography Awareness Week National Geographic has created a website called Mission Explore. Mission Explore is a series of challenge activities designed to get students explore, record, and think about the geography of their communities. Some of the challenge activities ask students to create a maze, photograph evidence, write a play, and make observations about the sounds, sights, and smells of their communities. You can view the Mission Explore challenges online or download a PDF of all of the challenge activities.
