In the Classroom

Within the resources section is a collection of lesson plans and classroom activities that would be a boon to any teaching a cultural or physical geography class. A lot of the lessons could easily be pulled into a US or World history class, which is great since geography is something normally pulled into those topics through national standards of learning.
