Throughout the year we will be working to develop a sound understanding of Geography. The purpose behind this is for the students to better understand the world around us and be able to better know how current events in other places might impact us. Each student should have their own binder dedicated to use for geography. Each week students will receive a daily geography assignment that provides a map and a series of 2 questions relating to the map for each day of the week. Additionally, most of our Friday Social Studies periods will be devoted to reviewing the geography skills that we are currently working on. Our current focus in geography is on the continents, oceans and hemispheres.
