We consider geography a life skill. Join us as we continue our life long study of the world. For our 2015-16 study we will focus on reviewing the regions of Asia and the Middle East. Then we turn our sights on Australia and the pacific! Come join us for another fun year!
World Geography 2 will start with a brief review of concepts from our study last year. Games will be played to refresh the following concepts: longitude/latitude, relative location, hemispheres, tropics, and international date/time. Students will refer to their detailed political and geographical maps of North, Central, and South America along with the Caribbean Islands. Geographic vocabulary terms along with political topics will be covered. The goal of our mapping program this year is to cover 4 regions: Eastern Europe & Northern Asia, Southern Asia, Australia & Pacific, and Africa. Emphasis will be placed on understanding regional cultures, religions, climate, geographic features, and economics with respect to how they shape individual people and nations.
