**Preliminary Geography Bee during class- Last week of November/first week of December. I will update you when I have a definite date!**
Our first unit of the year will be a review of world geography. This will include the seven continents, five oceans, and their basic information. In our next unit students will learn a variety of map skills. We will focus primarily on longitude and latitude. Finally, we will be learning about the five themes of geography! It is critical that students understand this material in order to be successful as we progress throughout the year. We will use these themes to analyze other parts of the world and recognize the interconnectedness which exists.
