Unlocking European Geography with National Geographic Tools

This fall, I had the opportunity to collaborate with my social studies colleague at Kearney High School, Amber Lewis, to combine my 11-12th grade AP World History class with her 9-10th grade world geography course.  My students served as mentors to the younger geographers as they explored the us of several National Geographic Education resources.  Amber and I were fortunate to be featured on the National Geographic Educator Spotlight Blog.  Here's the link to the blog post at:

In addition, we produced a capstone video for the National Geographic Educator Certification program that explains this lesson that we taught.  Here's a link to the video:
