A great way to teach geography! Capture students' imagination with a jaw-dropping world record and then build on that interest to teach core ideas. For example, a lesson on the world's deepest valley (it's three miles deep!) leads to activities about the formation and parts of valleys and the importance of valleys to people. Students make model mountains, consider the challenge of desertification, read and make maps, and conduct dozens of other high-interest activities.
