Geography- SOL USII.2c We will be studying the Regions, States, and Cities of the United States of America throughout the semester. Mastery of this subject is challenging - please take a look at the Ducksters and Quia websites below to help you with this process, there are fun and challenging games on states and cities that will pay off when it comes to quizzes and tests. Your first major non-test grade in this class will be a project involving one of our states - more information to come!
