World Geography

World Geography*

Fascinating cultures. Erupting volcanoes. Global Positioning Systems. And bizarre foods. These topics and more are covered in this course! As students develop a foundation in map skills, they will also embark on a fascinating exploration of different cultures and people groups. (Of course, the best part of learning about other cultures is the food! Most classes will feature food and snacks from different regions of the world.)

Students will build their own atlas, play in-class games to learn country locations, engage in hands-on activities (like geo-caching), “travel” to other countries (via videos, food tastings, a foreign currency project, etc.), and be encouraged to pray for people groups worldwide.
