Grade 7
Knowledge of the world around us includes exploring far away cultures and peoples.  The study of geography gives us insights into the climatic and regional variations across the earth.
 
There are four units of study in our class this year: Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America.
  • Latin America is our first quarter unit of study.
  • Africa will be the focus of study for the second quarter.
  • Europe and Russia will be studied during the third quarter.
  • Asia is our fourth and final unit of study.
For each unit of study we will investigate the geography, history, and culture of each region. 


Students will receive a textbook for each unit from the World Studies Program published by Prentice Hall.

The class aims to give students a general exposure to and working knowledge of the world around us and the many cultures and geographical factors that shape human history.
