Five themes of geography
The Five themes of geography is an educational tool for teaching geography. Adopted in 1984 by the Association of American Geographers, the five themes were published in the NCGE/AAG publication Guidelines for Geographic Education, Elementary, and Secondary Schools. Most American geography and social studies classrooms have adopted the five themes in teaching practices.
The five-theme organizational approach was superseded by the National Geography Standards, a set of eighteen standards promulgated in 1994. However, the five themes continue to be used as an educational approach in many educational outlets.
