This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-And-Social-Studies-Academy This lesson teaches students about how U.S. geography has shaped events throughout the history of the United States. This lesson was designed for students taking US History classes. Students will be asked to identify major geographical features including our major rivers, mountain ranges, the Chesapeake Bay, Cape Cod, and Long Island Sound. Students will be exposed to physical maps, political maps, and absolute location. Students will also learn how territorial expansion took place and how land was acquired. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics and Social Studies Academy’s lessons, this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans, worksheets, smartboard files and activities, are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. As a social studies teacher, I have often looked for good YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens.

This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-And-Social-Studies-Academy This lesson teaches how the three regions of the 13 Colonies differed from one another: New England, the Middle Colonies, and the Southern Colonies. Students will learn how the climate and geography of the three colonial regions impacted the economic as well as the social lives of colonists in the three regions of the 13 Colonies. Students will learn how the New England colonists had to look to different types of revenue as farming in these colonies, due to cold weather and bad soil, was meager. Students will be introduced to the way New Englanders turned to lumber, ship building and shipping, fishing, whaling and trading the center of their economic lives. Students will also learn how life was more centered around towns and strict religious practices. Next we provide an examination of the Middle Colonies, and their more diverse economic, ethnic, and religious diversity. Students will learn how this region, the “Breadbasket” of the colonies combined much more agriculture into their economy, with their mix of manufacturing, shipping, and trading. We look at the different religions of practiced in this regions and the different ethnic backgrounds of the settlers. Finally, students will learn how agriculture, especially the production of cash crops, impacted the social and economic lives of the Southern colonies. Students will learn how this region, which enjoyed more religious toleration, was spread out impacting the social, political and economic lives of the Southern Colonies. Student will be introduced to how slavery began to take hold in this region. Our lesson concludes with a look at some similarities between the lives of the average colonist in comparison to their European counterpart.

As a group we developed a creative way for teachers to introduce and reinforce the provinces and territories of Canada. We planned a scavenger hunt at Malden Park where we used the landscape, surroundings, textbook, and iPad for the students to solve clues. This also introduces the use of coordinate systems and how to use google maps. This activity can be adapted for any grade level and on a micro to macro scale. This activity is inquiry and discovery based in order to accommodate differentiated learners to be successful in achieving curricular objectives. This video can be used in two fashions 1) as a teaching resource for the teacher to plan their own geographical scavenger hunt and 2) the video can be used as an introductory activity for the students to get excited about their own upcoming scavenger hunt. This particular scavenger hunt was created for a grade 7 class.

In which John Green teaches you about the massive immigration to the United States during the late 19th and early 20th century. Immigrants flocked to the US from all over the world in this time period. Millions of Europeans moved to the US where they drove the growth of cities and manned the rapid industrialization that was taking place. In the western US many, many Chinese immigrants arrived to work on the railroad and in mines. As is often the case in the United States, the people who already lived in the US reacted kind of badly to this flood of immigrants. Some legislators tried to stem the flow of new arrivals, with mixed success. Grover Cleveland vetoed a general ban on immigration, but the leadership at the time did manage to get together to pass and anti-Chinese immigration law. Immigrants did win some important Supreme Court decisions upholding their rights, but in many ways, immigrants were treated as second class citizens. At the same time, the country was rapidly urbanizing. Cities were growing rapidly and industrial technology was developing new wonders all the time. John will cover all this upheaval and change, and hearken back to a time when racial profiling did in fact boil down to analyzing the side of someone's face.

It's a misconception that Geography is only about finding nation capitals on a map. In this video Joseph Piwowar shows how the study of Geography extends to areas such as linguistics, politics, aid work, information systems, culture, development, economics and the environment. Piwowar is a Geography professor at the University of Regina and Canada Research Chair in Geomatics and Sustainability. "Your place of birth (for example) influenced the economy of where you grew up because you consumed goods and services. It also effected the environment of the place where you grew up because after those goods and services were consumed they ended up in the landfill . . . . If you really care about the place we live in, about climate change, for example and you want to do something about it, you want to learn more and understand how you can adapt to the impacts that are coming then you need to study Geography." - Joseph Piwowar To comment on this video please visit: http://www2.uregina.ca/yourblog/?p=1937
