This unit is the introductory unit for a Human Geography course. It emphasizes spatial thinking. After learning the basic concepts and vocabulary of human geography, you will apply what you have learned in creative ways. You will make maps, create a blog and do a geographic field study that you will present online. I think you will find this unit interesting and fun. Hopefully it will lead you to see the world around you in a different light.
