Unit 1: Geography

Posted by Myla Liljemark on August 19, 2013

I give two types of assignments in my class.  Formative Assessments are assignments that you can retake over and over until the end of the unit.  Summative Assessments are assignments that you cannot re-do.

Formative Assessment #1 Textbook as a Resource

Handout:  Textbook Scavenger Hunt

This is an assignment that was done in class.  You need your textbook for this assignment.

Two questions on this assignment refer to “the Continental United States.” That is basically the “lower 48.”  All US states except Alaska and Hawaii.
