They will engage in cross-curricular activities to reinforce the information gathered from class notes, high-interest text, maps, charts, graphs, and timelines. Students will spend ample time utilizing physical, political, and thematic maps and honing the skills (directions, grids, scales, legends and symbols) needed for those maps to be beneficial.
