 Today's Focus Question  How did the geography affect life in India?

Video: Geography and Climate of India  Watch the short video below about the geography and climate of India below and then be prepared to share something you learned today. 

CNN Student News and Current Event Mapping  As we watch CNN Student News today, identify one or two news stories that you can pinpoint geographically and place on the Current Event layer of your Social Studies World Map via Google Maps. 

Washington, D.C.; the Persian Gulf; South Carolina; and the University of Southern California were all featured in today's segment. After pinning at least one of these places on your map, consider the most important question: What happened here? You should include a title for the event, the date(s) the event took place, a brief summary of what happened, and include an appropriate photo or video.
