Geography Self-starts & Tests
This upcoming school year we will be learning the names of every country on Earth. After we study each continent student will have a geography quiz where they will be expected to know the names of the countries on that continent.
Everyday students will also have a geography self-start that will be done in class, this packet will be centered around each of the seven continents. Along with the self starts students will be assigned a country to do a mini report on. The mini report should be done on poster paper that I will provide.
