Mr. Schultz's 7th Grade Geography

Hello and welcome to 7th grade.  The only required material that you will need for my class is a spiral notebook to complete your journals in.  The only required behaviors are curiousity and questioning.  Let's learn about the world together!

10/12-10/16  We are researching current events throughout the world looking for countries that appear in the news consistently.  On Friday we will be having a draft where the kids pick five countries as part of their "fantasy team".  A website called FanSchool supports this competition and gives points to countries according to how often they appear in various news stories.  The competition will ast through the semester.  Should be a fun learning experience.
