World Geography

Length:Full Year Class PeriodWednesday, period 1
Description: As our world "shrinks," the study of geography and the cultures of the world and its people becomes more and more relevant to our lives. This class is designed to acquaint students with each continent by studying its geography, cultures, landforms, climates, resources, economy, religions, and governments. Students will interpret maps and charts, complete hands-on projects, pray for each region, and discuss current events of the world. Students will also identify significant capitals and countries on a map.
