Hi everyone!

I'm a new ESL teacher in the US and I'm teaching an elective course for ESL learners on US cities and states. While the theme is broad, I'm having a very difficult time coming up with engaging lesson activities to use. The class is a supplement for students outside of their longer level blocks and my class contains around 12 students of varying levels and backgrounds.

I polled the students on the first day to see what areas of the US they wanted to know more about specifically, and I have a range of locations. However I'm unsure how best to teach about these areas. Especially without a computer lab or computer access.

I look for any and all suggestions to help with my class!
