As part of being good citizens in society, it is important to be aware of the world around us. In an effort to become more aware, all students taking Geography and World Studies at Timberline are expected to learn the locations of most of the world's countries and some capitals. Students will take fill-in-the-blank tests throughout the year to demonstrate their knowledge. Tests will be divided up by region to make learning the countries more digestible. However, in place of CRTs, Geography students will be given a final map test with all of the countries they have learned.
Geography Core Tests
We will have a final exam in geography and two final exams in world studies.
