Description: Students will take a grand tour, one continent at a time around the world! We will learn about the different geography, cultures and foods that go along with each place we visit. We will even have the opportunity to learn to cook and taste dishes from many different cultures. Students will be participating in class discussions, workbook assignments, class projects and cultural cooking lessons throughout the year. Using a variety of resources, we will dive into the geography, history, religion, current events, and culture of all seven continents. Students will be using an atlas, encyclopedia and textbooks to find geographical elements, define new terms, describe the geography of a certain area, and more.
