Foundations of World Geography


Deposit Due at Time of Registration:

In this year-long course, students will learn about the physical geography of God’s amazing world! We will begin by focusing on map reading skills and move on to study four different spheres (the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere). By examining different kinds of maps – political, physical, climate, population, etc. – students will also learn the locations of countries around the world. This course provides a strong background for the study of cultural geography at the high school level.

A. in Russian history and completed additional hours of graduate coursework toward a Ph.

    This was our second year with Excelsior Classes. After traditional homeschooling and laying down the foundation for independent course work, our family learned about Excelsior Classes through extensive research. We are delightfully pleased with not only the teachers, but the Christian foundations and how each instructor incorporates into their classes. My daughter who is not much of a history/geography kind of gal, LOVES learning about the world with Mrs. Eggers. She not only looks forward to class each week, but is requesting to take another course taught by Mrs. Eggers. She enthusiastically interacts with the students and her knowledge of the subject material is evident in how she teaches the students.

    My kids found this to be a gentle and steady approach to world geography. This was their first experience with a structured world geography course, and we were very pleased with the instruction, the consistency of the course, and the pace.
