This is a fun, very hands-on class. During the year, students will be learning to complete an entirely blank world map, blank continent maps, and blank U.S. maps from memory. We will be learning all continents, oceans, major bodies of water and rivers, all 50 united states and capitals, and countries across the world. We’ll learn about geographic landforms, map keys, the compass rose, grids, time zones, and other geographic terms. There will be outside work required each week consisting of map work and memorization of locations. The end result will be students who are well versed in the physical geography of the world.
As a supplement to our study of the physical world, we will be reading some missionary stories corresponding to some of the locations we will be learning. There will be approximately 1 book for every 6-8 weeks of class.
