Geo Chapter 4 – Human Geography Assignment

Chapter 4 includes four sections.

  • Using sections 1, 2, & 4 (and the internet for questions you can’t answer from the book) complete the Chapter 4 Review Questions – sections 1, 2, 4.  You may also wish to make an outline, albeit brief, for the information not covered by the questions, but discussed in sections 1, 2, & 4 – specifically vocab words.
  • Section 3 is a quick review of our gov and econ basics unit – no need to make an outline. Helpful for a brief review of the earlier Gov & Econ units.

We will began working on this assignment in class on Wednesday, April 29th and Friday, May 1st, and it will be due on Friday, May 1st.

Geo Chapter 3: Climate Homework

Students should read pages 55-69 in Geography text, create outline notes (main ideas from each section and vocab words) for sections 1 & 2, and complete the Climate Regions Graphic Organizer, which can be accessed through the link and will be given out in class on Thursday, April 23rd, instead of outlining section 3.  Section 3 discusses the various climate regions found on Earth.  There are five main regions that then break down into sub-regions.  In order to distinguish between the sub-regions, you will need to provide descriptions that indicate how these regions differ.  Because climate dictates vegetation, you should also characterize vegetation differences for the sub-regions as well.

Due Dates:

  • Chapter 3 Sections 1 & 2 Outline: Thursday, April 23rd
  • Chapter 3 Section 3 Graphic Organizer: Monday, April 27th

Also, look at the Climate PowerPoint, which will be used for class discussions.
