Welcome to Ms. Messick's 8th Grade World Geography Website.  I am here to help you learn and want you to do your best!  We are about to embark on a fascinating journey around the world.  Throughout the year we will experience a variety of cultures, learn about the formation and development of the planet and how people relate to their environment.

Below are the course essential questions or the overall guiding questions for which this course was designed.

  • Why is “where” important?

  • How do humans and the environment influence/affect one another?

  • How can ever-changing geographic tools and forms of communication help us better understand our world?

  • What is the best way to make and distribute the things we need?

  • How is power gained, used, and justified?

  • How do groups determine unity and separation?

  • How do human systems shape people’s lives and perspectives?

We will take a regional approach to the course and will study the variety of physical, political, historical and cultural aspects of each region. We will also focus on non-fiction reading and writing throughout the year. Current events, classroom debates will also be a large part of the class.

All of my class assignments/handouts and learning targets can be found linked to my weekly schedule you can locate either below or on the side bar page. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions.
