History & Geography
MS Social Studies
Geography at The Fulton School is focused primarily on map literacy and the basic analytical tools of cartography, including longitude and latitude, contour intervals in topography, and varying map projections. Within each region, students are tested on water forms, land forms, and non-capitol cities, as well as climate zones, watersheds, and shifting political boundaries and divisions. There is also a unit on the creation, analysis, and mapping of basic demographic data.
