Aug. 11, 2008 – Humanites 8


Today we received our first vocabulary sheet. We worked for the first half of class on that worksheet.  Remember, every Monday (or the first class of the week) you will receive the new vocabulary worksheets and 10 new vocabulary terms. The worksheet should be turned into the class box at the beginning of the period on the following Monday.

For this week, those terms are:

location, place, absolute location, relative location, latitude, longitude, equator, Prime Meridian, hemisphere, compass rose
