Today we will take a brief look at continents -- and engage in a mild manor debate (the "Great Continental Debate") about how many continents there REALLY are on Earth.
We will also take a look at various map projects to further our understanding of maps, their uses, limitations and the hows and whys of map projections and discuss how map distortion and perceptions about the world can alter our perspective of it.

HW: Read CH. 1 Rubenstein + Quizlet Flashcards
While you may find there is some overlap between Chapter 1 of the Fouberg textbook and Chapter 1 of the Rubenstein textbook, its important to be familiar with both and begin taking notes for the vocab terms and concepts and adding multiple examples and case studies you can associate with the terms and concepts. This will help build a strong understanding of this unit.
