New! Current Event Format and due dates!
You can find the handout with the new format and due dates on the Forms and Docs page at left, but here are the due dates, if you just can't wait:

Friday, January 27 - theme: story about/from another country (resources on the handout for these)
Friday, February 10 - theme: politics or government
Friday, February 24 - theme: bring a printed copy of an article to class for an in-class current event day sharing and discussion!

Our Latin America Part II test will also be Friday, January 27. We got our study guides today and will continue to work on those as we go through the next few days. On Friday, Jan. 20, we will begin looking at the Amazon. A copy of the study guide can be found on the Forms and Docs page.

To practice the vocabulary for the test, please check out the Quizlet link on my Links page. It is in the Latin America folder.

Need some Latitude and Longitude practice? Try this game: http://www.kidsgeo.com/geography-games/latitude-longitude-map-game.php  Just highlight and right click the link. It's a little cheesy, but it works and is kinda fun.

Last, but not least, you can also view the GooglePresentations I put together with the themes of geography in the "Themes of Geography" folder on the "Forms and Docs" page.
