Answer Key

?_Geography Oral Presentation
  • Check student donut organizers to ensure appropriate information is recorded.
  • Since there are sixteen industry sectors, teachers may wish to assign sectors to students. Instead of an oral presentation, students could create a poster using the information they find, and including drawings or photos. Completed posters could form a bulletin board display.
