Today the students began their Geography Dictionary project. For now this is in-class- not homework. The instructions are as follows:

Geography Dictionary Project

You will be making a dictionary with geography terms. For each term you must define it in your own words, use it in an appropriate sentence, and draw a small picture of it (the picture is required only for 15 of the words- your choice).

The words are as follows:
infrastructure
renewable resources
nonrenewable resources
inexhaustible resources
Communism/Command Economy
Socialism, Traditional Economy
Free Enterprise
cottage industries
globalization
culture
pandemic
trade deficit
indigenous
innovation
customs

We also started watching "China's Lost Girls."
