World Geography will cover the basics of physical and human geography in relation to nine regions around the world. We will be looking at physical features of the world like landforms, bodies of water, climate/vegetation, etc. in addition to human characteristics like culture, regional identity, and human interaction with others and with the environment. Using skills like map-reading, interpreting graphs/charts, note-taking, and summarizing, students will gain a better understanding of the world around them and how the interact with that world.

We will be starting Unit 1: Basics of Geography using main idea questions and vocabulary words (found under the "Notes" tab). Working in stations and finding information in the text book with groups, will help students gather the necessary information before we start on Unit 2.
