First Day of Class

Congratulations on getting through the first day of class! 

You are all bright, fun students and I look forward to the rest of our semester together. Just to recap what we did:

Took Geography pre-quiz
Went over what Geography is and why we need to take it
          ("Because most U.S. Americans don't have maps!!" according to Miss South Carolina)
Discussed the class Disclosure Document and Unit 1 Plan
          (Both listed under the Class Documents tab on this blog)
Started our Map Pre-test

Please remember to work on the Map Pre-test and have it done by next class period! Remember- you won't know all the answers and THAT IS OK! We'll go over it next class period.
