Sixth Grade World Geography
Students will define the five fundamental themes of geography - location, place, human-environmental interaction, movement, and regions - and use these tools to develop their geographic literacy of Latin America, Europe and Russia, Africa, and Asia and the Pacific. The students will also examine various types of maps and acquire the map skills needed to study the physical and political divisions of these four major regions. In addition to the physical geography, the students will be introduced to the cultural, ethnic, economic, and political realities of these areas. Overall this course allows students to focus on a global perspective of their world.
