I'm glad that you are reading this and I would like to personally welcome you to M.S. Hershey Middle School! I invite you to share in my excitement...ADVENTURE AWAITS and learning Western Hemisphere Geography will be lots of fun!
I encourage my students to believe as I do that the sky is the limit! Over the course of the school year the children will be challenged to be geographers. Through inquiry, they will be constructing understanding to better understand their world. Geographers ask questions: Where is it? Why is it there? How did it get there? How does it affect people living there? How does it affect the natural environment in the area? Our virtual travel will allow your child to construct understanding while exploring the Western Hemisphere. Students will be provided an opportunity to use technology on a daily basis and will be accessing resources and completing assessments using Canvas. I encourage the children to use what they know, to challenge their minds, and explore their creativity.
