Geography – 5th Period Wednesday


Teacher: Grace Miller

Flight Information: (Course Description)

In this course students will take an adventurous Trip Around the World to explore each of the seven continents one at a time, studying the following areas: GEOGRAPHY (land forms, rivers, countries & cities, climate), HISTORY (brief overview of the history of each continent), RELIGION (Dominant religion/s of each continent; impact on Christianity), CULTURE (government, economics, society, thought & learning, art,  language), KEY PEOPLE (missionaries, historical & political figures, artists, scientists), CURRENT EVENTS/ISSUES (political, social, religious issues). NATIVE PLANTS & ANIMALS.  Activities & assignments will include mapping, research, fact charts, vocabulary drills, games, songs, skill testing, some artistic expression, and food preparation.

Flight Guidelines: Students will be expected to participate in class discussions, complete assigned homework on time, prepare reports & projects, learn geography songs for each region to aid in memorization, and maintain a tidy, organized notebook.
