The course begins with an overview of the Physical Geography of Europe. Each subsequent week, we will focus on one European country, where the emphasis will be on Physical Geography, but Human Geography will also be addressed. During each class, we will label and sometimes color at least two maps and discuss important topics as we do so. Geography is an extremely broad subject which overlaps with many other subjects such as Earth Science, Government, Economics, History and English...
Students will gain a better understanding of the Physical Geography of Europe as well as the Physical and Human Geography of six European countries.

No homework is assigned. Learners are required to come to class prepared with their colored pencils, a ruler and printouts of the maps and list of map locations. Color printouts are preferred, but not absolutely necessary.
Links to the maps and the list of map locations are posted to the classroom approximately 24 hours prior to class. Students are expected to print these out and bring them to class along with a few colored pencils and a ruler. There are usually two or three maps, plus a list of map locations. If you are able, please print these out in color so you can see the blue rivers more clearly. Black & white printouts are certainly acceptable.
All assessments are informal. These lessons are meant to be relaxing and are really just an introduction the Geography of Europe and to the individual countries we will study since we only have 55 minutes. I will usually end the class with a short and fun quiz-like game.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I create all my lessons on Nearpod. The learners will be given a link to the Nearpod lesson at the beginning of each class. Learners should be familiar with splitting their screen, where Zoom will be on one side of the screen and the Nearpod lesson will be on the other side of the screen. This is not difficult to learn. If this is an unfamiliar skill for the learner, the parent may wish to assist the learner for the first lesson or two. Instead of splitting their screens, some learners choose to use two devices, which is ideal.
