This year in Geography, we’ll be traveling around the world, learning as much as we can about our diverse and ever-changing world. Before we can start to study Geography in depth, however, we first need to understand the framework through which we’ll study the countries. That’s why we start off the year with a unit on The 5 Themes of Geography. Our Big Question for the unit is:
How can we understand people and places that are different from us?
Through this framework, we’ll examine location, place, region, movement, and human-environment interaction. Once we’ve studied those topics, we’ll have a strong foundation from which to explore the world.
