Abstract: Studies carried out in teaching geography mainly aim at determining the encountered problems. One of the main objectives of geography education is to improve geographical thinking skills. Every work in this field will help students to identify themselves and the entire universe; and use the information in their daily lives. The studies about geography teaching in Turkey mostly focus on topics such as course book, concepts and encountered problems. With the acquisition of geographical thinking skills, students can have the opportunity to think, synthesize, analyze and evaluate geographic information. Location and how it affects relationships with other phenomena are the basis of geographical thinking. This is also possible in other research methods, such as reaching information, explaining, analyzing and thinking on it. The geographic skills required of a geographically informed person consist of five sets of skills adapted from the Guidelines for Geographic Education: Elementary and Secondary Schools, prepared by the Joint Committee on Geographic Education by the Association of American Geographers and the National Council for Geographic Education. This study tries to answer questions such as; “What is geographic thinking approach? What are the main features of the geographical thinking process? How the geographical thinking learning process should be organized in terms of geography education in middle schools?” For this purpose, we developed an implementation of a lesson plan for geographical thinking skills.
