I am here. Will someone give me some direction?- Compass Directions and Mapmaking
Geography and History in Grades 5 & 6 (Mrs. Ecklund)
How does the geography of a place influence the culture and economic life of that place? We will explore this question through some topographic sculpting.
The World as a Living Organism for Grades 7 & 8 (Mrs. DuRocher)
In this session of our curriculum night, we will be focusing (briefly) on the physical, cultural and political geography of Africa. We will learn a song from the Ewe people of Ghana and experience some work with pastels while we discuss various aspects of this continent's great history and its incredible topography.
