MS Geography- An Exploration Around the World
Geography is about so much more than places on a map or globe; the various regions of our world contain people who experience life in very different ways. In an effort to bring global awareness to students, we will study the natural features of the continents around the globe, and examine many countries and their people. Students will discover how language, religion, the arts, government, history, and resources of a country give it a unique culture. This class will encourage inquiry-based learning, and class discussions. Weekly homework is to answer an assigned question relevant to the country studied that week. One project will be assigned per continent to be completed over several weeks.
A $10 supply fee will be charged. Please direct questions to Ashley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No textbook is required. A binder is needed for class handouts, maps and homework.
