Each place on earth has a "personality," that is, something that makes it special or unique. Physical features, such as lakes, islands, peninsulas, and gulfs, are part of what makes a place unique.
Students examine a variety of geographic features and see if they can match them with their names. Once they know the names of all the features, they are ready to take the Geographic Features Quiz. Contributed by Linda Weissler of Welby Way Elementary School-LAUSD.
After you have mastered all the geographic features, take this quiz to assess your understanding of the concepts.
Learning the geographical features of the earth helps students study the physical location of a place. The relative location of a place on the Earth's surface can be identified by how it relates or is connected to another place. Knowledge of geographical features can make locating a place in the world much easier.
