World Geography Class Gets a Taste of Montreal!

1105151011 Students in the morning World Geography class enjoyed a visit from Mrs. Horup, Vivi’s mother,  yesterday.  She shared with us  her experiences growing up in the province of French Quebec, as well as some samples of French Canadian cuisine.  It was a most enjoyable way to synthesize from the textbook to real life!


World Geography Field Trip

World Geography students (high school & middle school) participated in three  Earth in Space programs during a visit to  Georgia Southern University’s planetarium.  It was a great visual  interactive learning experience for everyone.  Afterwards, the Heritage students enjoyed lunch in the campus food court and a guided tour of the college campus.  All in all, it was a meaningful activity and an opportunity for the two different groups of students to interact with one another in a fun and educational field trip.
