I hope everyone had some fun in the snow this weekend! On Monday and Tuesday we will finish our Landfill Projects. Wednesday will be our Unit 2 Test. Thursday we will begin Unit 3 by completing maps of the Middle East and North Africa and on Friday we will study the physical geography of that region.
Happy MLK week! Hopefully you had a day On and not a day OFF. This week we will continue learning the tools of Geographers. On Tuesday we will look at Natural Processes, Climate Change, and Cultural tensions and students will create solutions to these issues. On Wednesday we will dig deeper into our own cultures by creating personal culture guides . On Thursday we will start our Landfill Project which explores the "Not in My Back Yard" phenomenon. On Friday we will finish our projects and share our proposals with the class.
Homework this week comes from Chapters 1-4 in the workbook and will be given out Tuesday.
Week 2! We will be taking our pre-test on Monday, and looking at immigration on Tuesday. On Wednesday we will wrap up Unit 1 with a quick quiz and begin Unit 2: Geography Tools.
On Thursday we will examine the tools Geographers use to study the world. On Friday we will look in depth at Map Reading Skills as we employ latitude, longitude, graphs, charts, and thematic maps to enhance our skills.
I am so excited to meet all of my new students!
