We are a group of students at the Georgia Institute of Technology, enrolled in an English 1102 course with the subject of science writing for children. When it came to choosing a topic for our exhibition, we were quick to pick geography, since in our group alone we have backgrounds from Russia, Singapore, South Africa, and India. We believe geography is an essential piece of knowledge in today’s world, and by exploring how it was taught in the past, we can gain valuable insights.
