ch1less1 The American Land

Hello 8th graders,
It's great to have you back into the swing of things. I have high hopes that this will be a productive and enjoyable year. We will spend most of this week understanding how geography has impacted our nation. Below the chapter guide are a few links to some geography games. Make sure to spend some time playing them as they will help with your overall understanding of our nation's geography. I will introduce the activity in class on Wednesday so I will expect that you have completed tonight's homework by tomorrow's class.
