World Geography (6th - 8th grade)
Join us on an expedition around the globe, learning more about God's diverse Creation while cultivating an appreciation for unique cultures and lands. Through an introduction of cartography, students will begin to have more concrete understanding of the physical elements of our world. Students will also learn more about cultures and lands far away, as they interact with the information through hands on activities and crafts, research for their own personal country presentations, and literature selections. Students will learn about geographic concepts such as population, agriculture, natural resource allocation and management, industry, political geography, cultural geography and organization of the different regions around the world. In addition, students will examine the impact of the physical environment on people and culture. Students will also be active researchers in the people groups of these lands, giving them a better appreciation of other cultures and societies. Students will be encouraged to take notes in class and ask questions both during class time and during the week via phone, email, or by designated personal sessions. There will be homework each week that will be graded by both completion and accuracy. Students will also be graded on tests, quizzes, and potential projects. Related fieldtrips are being considered.
