geography class in Haiti!

A young girl stands next to a map in her classroom in Haiti
What do you notice about the map on the wall?

This girl is studying a map to learn more about Earth. Maps are one important part of geography, which is basically the study of places. In geography class, students learn all about Earth’s surface and the layer of gas surrounding it, called the atmosphere. They also learn how people and places change one another.

If a sponsored child like this girl dreamed of becoming a geographer as an adult, she could work hard to get a job as a cartographer (mapmaker), landscape architect, teacher, recycling officer — the atmosphere’s the limit!
