World Geography is a study of the six basic geographic regions of the world: chapter one, North America; chapter two, South America; chapter three, Europe; chapter four, Africa; chapter five, Asia; and chapter six, Oceania. Each chapter covers 15 topics: borders, terrain, water, climate, vegetation and wildlife, famous sites and events, ethnicity, languages, religions, transportation, government, diplomacy, economics, natural resources, and industry, including exports. Maps, charts, and graphics enhance understanding and appreciation of the distinctives of each region. Students learn about such wildlife as polar bears, kangaroos, moose, eagles, seals, and tigers. Famous places are explored: pyramids, castles, canyons, tourist attractions, mountain ranges, and islands. Students learn about Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Eastern religions. Lessons describe such things as rivers, ports, exports, free enterprise, national traditions, and transportation ranging from donkeys to jumbo jets. This course is designed for one high school transcript credit.
