Grundskola 5 Geografi
What is geography? This unit is all about the importance of the world around us. We will focus on maps, erosion, different types of habitats and how we work with (and against) the world! We will especially focus on Scandinavia- its geography, peoples and environmental factors. The final project is a travel brochure for one of Sweden, Norway, Denmark or Finland.
