This lesson will help students understand some key concepts of human migration through the examination of maps and migration patterns. Students will research and document the impact of migration on a region's cultural landscape. They will examine migration patterns on a global and national scale as a class and then apply that understanding to a class project telling a migration story about their own community.

As a part of the National Geographic Education and Children’s Media division, National Geographic Education focuses on working closely with and creating materials for educators and schools that bring the Society's spirit of exploration and adventure to our goal of educating young people about their world. 

To be effective in the modern world, young people will need to be able to thrive in diverse workplaces and respond to fast-changing circumstances. To act responsibly, they will need to understand how our interconnected world works so they can make informed decisions. These are the same qualities exemplified by National Geographic explorers for more than 125 years. For that reason, our work is aligned to a learning framework that defines the attitudes, skills, and knowledge of an explorer. 

Educators and learners can find and explore all materials created by National Geographic Education here, at NatGeoEd.org. With over one million visitors each month, the award-winning NG Education website is recognized as one of the most innovative sources for educational and reference content.
