Welcome back. Do you know how to draw South America from memory? David J. Smith, a renowned professor, has been challenging students from all over the country to really learn about mapping. Above is an example from a 6th grade class. Last year we did a modified version. It was quite successful.
Monday, you will turn in the U.S. and Canada book. You will be issued your Latin America text. We will become familiar with the geography of this huge continent, just as we did with North America. We will also be using Rand McNally geography lessons. We will review longitude and latitude and the five themes of geography.
