How do you teach the five themes of geography?
My students make a fold-able with a spot for each theme. Then we write out a student friendly definition and draw a picture.
In sixth grade, we don't spend much time on it as it has been taught in previous grades.
I also try to give them a way to remember the 5 themes with Mr Help - Movement, Region, Human-enviroment, Location and Place. I have used mind maps with my high schoolers when I taught Geography.
