Printable Geography Glossary
When you learn about geography, you learn about features of the earth. Some things, like mountains or lakes, are no-brainers. But there are other words that some adults are even unsure of. After all, what exactly IS an isthmus anyway?
It’s words like these that bring up the need for a Geography Glossary.
And what better way to get kids really learning new geography words than to have them make their own glossary?
These printables allow you to do just that! And it’s easy!
All you need to do is print the Glossary Front Cover for each student to color, plus the number of Term Pages they will need for the year. If you plan to add a term once a week, print about 34-36 pages for terms, depending on your schedule. Keep everything in a small binder or folder, or in the back of their current Geography binder (we call them Travel Journals here at Let’s Go!).
The download includes a list of suggested Geography terms. Each week, assign a new term for your student(s) to add to their collection. The Term Pages include a place for them to write the new term, draw a picture illustrating the term, and then write their definition below that.
That’s all there is to it! And if you keep this as part of your Geography Lesson each week, you will have an impressive glossary by the end of the year!
There’s usually a small charge for the Geography Glossary printables (on this page), but for a LIMITED TIME, we are offering this packet FREE! Why? Well, we want to give you a taste of the types of hands-on projects and creative ideas we have here at Let’s Go Geography. Our goal is to make Geography fun and engaging for every student.
