Making an Illustrated Dictionary with Geographic Terms

Grade Level(s): ESB 1 2010

Subjects and Teachers : Geography (Mrs. Zabaleta)- IT (Mr. Rizzo)

Goals:
 The purpose of this activity is to acquaint you with the new geographic terms that will
be used during the Geography’s course of study throughout your MYP/IGCSE course
up to Polimodal 1.
 This activity is also aimed at promoting cooperative learning within a team between
2 of your ESB 1 subjects in the classroom.

Objectives:
As a result of this activity, you will be able to:
 apply geographic terms in describing and understanding the specific places of study
in the world
 practice the use of IT skills working with Microsoft word program.

Materials:
Student dictionaries, glossary from “New Foundations book”, list of terms (from their folders
or textbooks as well), and at least one more source of information (web site, Encarta, other
textbooks, etc), Microsoft Word.

Procedure:
1) You will work individually to produce an illustrated dictionary of geographic terms.
2) Each meaning should range between 10 and 20 words in length and should be
accompanied by a relevant example, which might be of your own invention, as
well as a small illustration
3) The TERMS should be classified under one of the following categories: PHYSICAL
GEOGRAPHY, HUMAN GEOGRAPHY, ENVIRONMENTAL GEOGRAPHY and GEOGRAPHY
SKILLS and arranged alphabetically within each section. Both a title page and an
index page should introduce this piece of work as well.
4) A printed copy of the meanings and the examples ONLY should be handed in on
Wednesday 12-05-2010 to be assessed with criteria A and B (Geography). A final
copy should be handed in on :Wednesday 26-05-2010
5) Each student should keep on working in IT lessons to present their own finished copy
(1 copy per group) with a proper organization and presentation as a notebook
(Criterion C in Geography). This copy should include an index, numbered pages
and a detailed list of the sources of information at the back (READ THE GUIDE
OVER) as well as coloured illustrations inserted next to each meaning.
6) The format of this notebook is of your own choice (in order to develop your
creativity) as long as you use as many of the possibilities that the Word program
offers.
