We went back and brushed up on latitude and longitude. We gave it a shot on paper, then moved to globes. After we practiced on the globes, we reviewed globalization a little bit. You guys all remember that, don't you? Banananovia and what not? If not, you should click on the link.
We reviewed the positives and negatives of globalization, once again referring to Banananovia.
Most classes got a chance to watch this video, although some did not finish it:
If you want the extra credit for reading and discussing the blog today, tell the adult reading with you whether 30°N is a line of latitude or longitude. Then, tell them what the driving force behind globalization is - and whether it is good, bad or both, and why.
After you discuss it, write a simplified version of your answers on a scrap of paper, and turn it in tomorrow.
See you then.
Don't forget your calculator. Seriously, post something to facebook reminding everybody to bring one tomorrow. And get a good night sleep. You owe it to yourself, and to Mrs. Gowdy.
