World Geography

Join us on a geographic journey around the world through all seven continents.  We’ll be mapping, using an atlas, researching areas of interest, while learning about the culture and landscape of countries around the world.  During the 26 week class, students will create their own customized Geography Notebook.  This class will include some homework in the form of weekly geography questions and some independent research.

Each student will need to purchase their own student atlas (we recommend the National Geographic Student World Atlas) and a three ring binder to bring to class.

Age range: 9-12

Activity Rating: Tangy- this activity is a mix of calm and high energy periods, good for kids who can focus for short periods of time but also like to get up and move around

Occasional materials fee for class projects.

About the volunteer instructor: Heddi has been homeschooling for the past 11 years and she is looking forward to learning more about world geography with her students.
