Full Year Course 6th – 8th grade
One Geography Credit
Course Tutor: Angie Murrell
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. They will be learning all continents, oceans, major bodies of water and rivers, all 50 united states and capitals, and countries across the world. They’ll learn about geographic land forms, 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 the study of the physical world, students will be reading missionary stories and biographies corresponding to some of the locations we will be learning. There will be approximately 1 book for every 6-8 weeks of class.
Parents are expected to see that their student has all of the appropriate materials prior to the first class session. Parents will need to monitor the student’s daily map and memory work in order to ensure that he/she is keeping up with the schedule. The student notebook must be graded by the parent for each nine-week period. If a student is not willing to work hard, and the parents are unwilling to supervise their student’s progress, please do not register for this course.
