Geography is not something that you would understand sitting at home or school. Scenic beauty, exquisite landscape, rough terrains, and everything that you will observe is related to Geography. Undoubtedly it is one of the most intriguing subjects that one can build their career upon. This view has somewhat changed and now is looked upon as tedious and troublesome.
There is a huge debate of how much assignments should be given to students. Here we will discuss how to make your Geography project easier and revive the interest that you are on the verge of losing.
1: Think of yourself as an adventurer:
Delve into the map; think of it as a quest for inexplicable moments around the globe. This way you will be able to seek uncovered territories, unnamed exotic locations, and much more. With the power of the internet, this knowledge is easy to acquire. Projects can be of different types, and open projects are the best if you want to relish Geography.
Try to stand out among other classmates by doing a project on10 places with bizarre cultures or 5 hidden food recipes that will leave you mesmerized. Rummage the Internet, seek the help of your parents or private tutors. Try to be more explicit and make the title interesting, so that it can be quirky and informative straightaway. Your project should feel like a narrative one; it should feel more like an expedition than dishing out blatant facts.
2: Travel through time and compare between two significant centuries:
History and Geography are inter-related in many ways. The landscape has changed over the past century or so. Be it the glaciers or the ice caps melting or the formation of new rivers the Geography continues to change at a significant rate. Always compare what the topography was during the Renaissance period as to what it is now.
If required, go out and explore and see the world with your own eyes before starting to jot down ideas. Explore significant ruins and get to know the whole history behind them as well as the Geography dwelling around it.
3: Get brainstorming ideas:
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Even if what you think might be a crazy idea, make sure it is unique. This is because Geography projects are all about uniqueness and creativity. People will learn about new things looking at your work. But substantiate that you do a lot of research before setting upon what you want to do. Look through different sites, magazines, ask your tutors for some insights.
Write down pointers and sketches to get a solid framework before starting off with your project. Make sure you have an idea that is different and will stand out from your classmate’s projects. Not just with the content but get ideas on how to do the cover of your project too. Don’t just wrap your cover in a brown paper and submit it. Be innovative and think outside the box.
4: Get out of your dilemmas:
Geography is a subject of doing instead of studying. You cannot learn about it sitting in your home comfortably with your legs up on your couch. No, that is not going to happen! Get up and roam around be it in your locality, village or in your city, try to find out more about the Geography of the place. If you are an adventure lover ideas will just swarm into your head looking at the scenery.
Nature is one of the best teachers we have at our disposal, so make use of it. There are various modes of transport at your disposal connecting various parts of your city, locality or area. Use them! If you think just by sitting at home and opening Google you can write a project, you are wrong. Yes, you will be able to write a dull project but to make your project more interesting and vivid, you have to get out of your house.
5: Your project should be significant infused with vibrancy:
Remember learning stops at no age, everyone, from your juniors to your teachers can learn something from your work. Performing experiments will help everyone understand better. Drawings, flow charts and tables hold a very appealing view to the beholder’s eyes. It makes everything easier and much more vibrant and colorful. Attach some real life pictures of the particular topic.
Don’t make false claims and input wrong information on the topic. Research your topic before starting. Just to make your project look good, don’t give wrong information to the readers. This will form a very bad impression of you in front of your teachers as well as fellow friends.
Geography is not false; there is nothing false about it. Everything you have to know you can see it with your own eyes. So don’t write false reports and sightings just for doing an interesting project. This will not only bring down your marks and presentation but the also your reputation and in front of your teachers.
All these little tips and tricks are important to keep in your mind while doing a Geography project. It’s no problem if you don’t like the subject much but doing a project is all about the fun and it’s the experience that counts when you are doing it.
