Geography class update - January 9

Today we began our unit covering the United States.  We talked about the different regions of the US and their main economic activities.  The students also picked their next project topics (also choosing whether they would cover the US or Canada).

Homework:
  • Geography coloring book - pages 7-11
  • Be sure to review your maps - please let me know if you'd like to see a list of all the items that need to be labeled on your maps.  I can also email a pdf of the US map for additional practice.
  • Extra credit for this unit: memorize the 50 states and capitals and be able to label them on a map.  If you would like to take a test of this, please let me know.  It would be given on a mutually agreeable date.  This is an all or nothing project.  The students will receive an extra 25 points to add to their test grades if it's completed perfectly.
