World Geography Lessons with Photos

by www.elcivics.com

These world geography photo lessons are designed for beginning to intermediate ELL, ESL, and EFL students. Each lesson has nine photos and a few brief facts. The material can be taught verbally while showing the photos on interactive white boards. The units can also be used as prompts for writing assignments like country reports. Teachers and students might want to collect videos, postcards, maps, and posters to supplement the lessons. I'll be adding more material to this section over the next several years.
