Geography (Grade 7) - Physical Patterns in a Changing World
Grade 7 students explore how physical features, climate, and vegetation interact to form patterns on the earth’s surface. They investigate the natural forms that contribute to these patterns and identify and explore relationships between natural and human systems. They also analyze and explain a variety of human responses to the physical environment.
