It is designed to guide educators and students through the 5 phases of asking and answering geographic questions, all of which are guided and grounded in geographic concepts, including how to think and see like a geographer exploring the world! Using both a geographic perspective and the GeoInquiry Process, educators will teach students how to connect complex components, see patterns, and make connections that change their communities.
