Description: This course solidifies mapping skills (preferably learned in Geography I and II from Memoria Press), and also requires students to label major landforms and topography. Students will study the climate, recent history, culture, and religion of every continent. Famous landmarks, architecture, and people from around the world will be presented to the students and at home work requires students to practice mapwork weekly. In addition to labeling maps, students will learn to freehand-draw each continent using the Robinson Map Project. This is a thorough world geography course that is perfect for middle school students before their advanced European and American history courses in high school. This course is worth 0.5 high school credits.
Grade Level: 7-9 (ages 12-14)
Prerequisites: Students should have completed Geography I and II from Memoria Press or another mapping program.
