Moroccon As An Example For Geography Lessons

Contributor :

Lesson Plan

I will take photographs of the desert as well as the High Atlas Mountains. I will also journal about what the climate feels like in the desert compared to near the ocean.

Pre-Departure Preparation

I am an Earth Science teacher, and I teach about climates in different parts of the world. I plan to use the climate of Morocco in my unit, and plan to use photos that I take (especially in the Sahara desert) to enhance my lessons. In addition, I teach about plate tectonics. I'd like to use pictures of the High Atlas Mountains to get the students wondering about plate movement in this part of the world.

Preparation During Travel

I will research why Morocco has a desert climate as well as how the High Atlas Mountains formed.
