Length:Full Year Class PeriodWednesday, period 3
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 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.

Covid - 19 Contingency Plan - In the event that we are forced to transition to online classes at any point in the school year, this class will continue to be held.
