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. Whereas most geography courses focus on maps, each of the six chapters of World Geography 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 dominant religions such as Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism. Lessons describe such things as rivers, ports, exports, free enterprise, national traditions, and transportation ranging from donkeys to jumbo jets.
World Geography is recommended for 10th grade. However, it is applicable for one high school transcript credit for any grade level 9-12. The course consists of six soft-cover texts and six student activity books. Eighteen sections quizzes and six chapter tests are included to measure student competency.
