Foundations of World Geography
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.
