World Geography is a course that invites students to explore fascinating places, people and things, and how they relate to each other. Maps, videos, virtual tours, Google Earth, and the textbook will be used to better understand basic concepts as well as current trends in our ever constant but ever changing world. Emphasis in the class is on the Earth’s physical features, weather and climate, ecosystems, population density, economic activities, and resources. Major regions to be studied include North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, the Pacific World, and the Middle East. Global warming, water scarcity, air pollution, invasive species, effects of earthquakes and volcanoes, comparing populations, and environmental conversation are among special features that will be topics for discussion.
