Mrs. Mansfield's Middle Ground
Our studies have blown us across the sea to Australia and the Pacific Islands.  Students will be able to identify various regions within Australia and the Pacific Islands,  identify unique plant and animal life, and explain human-environment interactions by the end of the unit. They should also know characteristics of lands in the Southern Hemisphere.  (You can see that we are focusing on Regions - one of the Five Themes of Geography.)   In addition, students will further refine their spatial and mapping skills by making sketch maps of this region.
