6th Grade World Geography Course Description


6th Grade World Geography


The goal of World Geography is to help students understand that the world, in all its diversity, still conforms to certain systems and can be looked at, compared, analyzed, and evaluated through those systems.  The five themes of place, location, movement, region, and human environmental interactions can be applied throughout the globe.  In addition, when these themes are paired with sound geography skills, they will empower students to become better citizens of the world.  The students will be able to look at world events and their impact on countries, cultures, environments, and individuals.
