Welcome to The World Awaits You. Here you will follow each Geography lesson given to you and turn in your assignment to me. With each assignment you turn in I will return to the site and publish your work for everyone to see (you will be given the chance to change anything before publishing or you may decide to not publish).

Each lesson will have a date and the assignment at the end of the lesson will be due 4 days after the posting.

Feel free to explore the site as it grows. I will be posting not only assignments but websites, articles, and interesting things about geography.

Good luck and enjoy yourself!
