The Prometheus Academy - MS World Geography
Sharing the fire of learning
In this class, as in most geography classes, we use maps, books, and the Internet to gain more information about this world where we all reside. But that is just the beginning. I have the amazing opportunity to meet students and friends from many of the places we plan to study, and I believe that getting to know people helps us get to know their countries, so I often ask friends from different countries to visit our class. I believe we learn best when we use as many of our senses as possible. We will taste foods, listen to music, hear stories, make things with our hands, and learn a few words and phrases in other languages.
