Mapping Out the Year So often, geography and history classes are presented to children in such a global manner that it is difficult for them to understand the major concepts; therefore, I would like for our journey in World Geography to begin right here in Simpson County and Kentucky – developing an appreciation for the world directly around us. . . branching out to master the rest of the U. S. and North America before traveling throughout the rest of the world. My hope, for each student this year, will be for them to become more analytical thinkers and global geographers.
