This course is a geographical survey of the United States and its territories. While emphasizing geography, the course is presented within the context of the other strands of social studies, including history, culture, and economics. This approach allows students to apply their new knowledge of U.S. geography to interpret and understand how geography affects the lives of all Americans. Unit 1 introduces students to the study of geography, including basic map skills. Units 2 through 8 employ a topical approach to study the regions of the continental United States. The course ends with a survey of the unique American jewels of Alaska, Hawaii, and the five organized U.S. territories.
