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 the
geography, cultures, land forms, climates, resources, economy, religions,
and government of each country. We will also take a look at the key
historical events and current events of each country.
