Abstract
This study aims to determine social studies teacher trainees’ comprehension level of climate, wind, temperature, precipitation, erosion, ecology and map concepts as part of the geography teacher training curriculum. The study was carried out with 200 teacher trainees studying at primary school social studies teaching departments of Selcuk University, Gazi University, Adıyaman University, Uşak University and Niğde University during 2008-2009 spring semester.
