Mr. Schultz's 7th Grade Geography

For the next few months we will be working on political journals along with our other work.  This means the kids will have a small amount of homework 3 to 4 times a week.  I encourage you to ask your child about our journal topics and help them form their thoughts on the different topics.  All the journals will be listed on this site.

4/20-25  We are starting a project on Mesoamerica on 4/20.  The kids are creating a travel brochure on either the Maya, Aztec, or Inca.  They have access to computers for four days and should be able to complete this in class.
