World Geography – GROUP 1
Deposit Due at Time of Registration:
In this year-long course, students will study both physical geography (climate, topography, landforms, map reading) and cultural geography (how people live around the world). Because geography is such an interdisciplinary subject, students will enjoy exploring connections to other fields such as science, history, religion, politics, and economics. Each week students will complete weekly assignments that are based on readings in the textbook and in the student activities manual. Using assigned map work exercises, by the end of the school year, students will have labelled all of the countries of the world, world capitals, and many bodies of water! Projects, short writing assignments, and class discussions will give students the opportunity to communicate their ideas about the different places and cultures they will study. Students will explore world religions, with an emphasis on the role of Christianity around the world. Advances in technology and ease of transportation have made our world seem smaller, and learning about the geography of our amazing world will help prepare students for the realities of life in the 21st century.
