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.

6/4 - finish

We are winding up our project presentations the next two days.  The kids will then be creating a world map that shows all the ancient civilizations that we have studied.  Hopefully we will fit in a few more journals as well.

There is no final.  The map will be due on the last day.
