World Geography & Culture
Mrs. Charity Ross
This is a very hands-on class! Students will explore the geography of each of the seven continents while learning about of some of the people, events, and cultures that have defined its place in history. They will study geographical and political boundaries as they craft their own maps: filling in major physical features, identifying natural resources, and labeling country names.
Note booking will encourage students to research, draw, cut and paste pictures, and copy information relating to the following topics: industry, wildlife; cultural foods, dress, and religions; flags, etc.
The student workbook, Around the World in 180 Days, contains perforated pages that should be removed and placed in their three ring binders as they complete each project. Blank maps will be provided in class, and some maps with sample information will be provided. The students will, however, need access to a simplified world atlas, wall map, globe, internet sources, etc. in order to complete their map work.
Most of their knowledge for animals, plant life, people and culture may be researched via the Bozeman Public Library, wildlife magazines, the internet etc.
Through this class, I hope that my students also gain a passion for understanding people and places to the furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
