GEOGRAPHY & HISTORY – 1488 CAMPUS 

Geography - High School - Kelly Wood

Geography is a high school course which counts as one credit of history. It is a foundational class so that students can form a mental map of the world, understand cultures and population centers, and appreciate how God formed the world with oceans, land, rivers, mountains, deserts, etc. Upon completing geography, students will be able to complete American and World History with a greater understanding of the physical world. Expected time outside of class each week needed for preparation and homework will average 5 – 6 hours.

 

1st Semester:

Students will have an introduction to longitude and latitude, study the history of map making, and learn about early explorers. The geography of Canada, the U.S., and Mexico, along with Central America, South America, Australia, and Antarctica will be studied. Missionary emphasis will include: Tom White in Cuba and Nate Saint in Ecuador. Students will be required to make a presentation on one geographical feature in the Western Hemisphere at the end of the semester.

 

Second Semester:

After Christmas, we will sweep through Europe and Africa for 4 weeks each. Topics such as the Lake Turnover Disaster in Cameroon and the Great Rift Valley will be presented. The last 6 weeks will cover the Middle East and Asia. Students will understand the major maritime chokepoints, the biomes of Russia, the great rivers of China, and the harsh winters of Mongolia. We will also Skype together as a class with personal friends living in some of the places we discuss to give us a first hand account of the area. The missionary emphasis this semester will be on David Livingstone in Africa and Gladys Aylward in China. We will end the semester with students bringing food from their favorite country to share for our end-of-year party.
