Middle school students put an interesting twist on geography in the classroom last week. Mr. Byrd’s classes were tasked with identifying, labeling and coloring all the countries, oceans and major seas in the world, as well as creating their own landform maps and videos highlighting their geographical knowledge. Four students in his 7th grade class produced a music video with a self-written script and original lyrics set to the tune of Backstreet Boys I want It That Way.
Watch and enjoy as they showcase their acting and singing talent, as well as their geography smarts.
