Quest MN History (9/8)

Posted by npolaschek on 8th September and posted in Home

Today, we discussed our maps that we created over the weekend and showed them to the class. Each of the maps were to include all of the TODALSS aspects of a map. Then, we looked at the ten largest cities in MN and attempted to identify what was the cause of their growth.

Tomorrow: We will be discussing why the ten largest cities were created. We will take them one by one and use geographic and historical information to infer why these cities are so large and why other cities are not. We will look at several different industries in MN and consider how industry and business has impacted the geography of MN. Finally, we will begin looking at several different elements of geography including Latitude, Longitude, Absolute and Relative location.

There is no homework tonight.

Welcome to Mrs. Polaschek’s class! It’s exciting to start another year here at BCMS. Today we will be going over the syllabus and getting to know each other. We’ll be doing several different activities to do this!

I’m Mr. Brown and I will be Mrs. Polashek’s long term substitute until November. I’m looking forward to teaching and sharing the first part of this year with all of you!
