Terms and Japan

I finally displayed the Gandhi pictures in the hall.  It takes a while to put them up, but they're up.  Check them out:

Can you find yours?  If you didn't finish it, don't forget that you can still turn it in for credit.  Actually, if you're missing anything, it might be a good idea to look into that.  You can download most stuff from H Block Assignments.  Turn it in before it's too late.

I'm hoping to have all the Japan Maps entered before the day is over today.  If you didn't turn that one in - get it done.  

We went over a bunch of geography terms today for bellwork: peninsula, archipelago vs. island, strait, canal, etc...

Michigan is a really peninsula-heavy state, huh?  

I might have changed that picture a little bit, so that it adds this:

I guess you can't have everything.  But seriously, it's a state of peninsulas within peninsulas.  

We also watched (or in some cases started watching) the Crash Course video on Nationalism and Japan.  It's very good as well, but boy does Mr. Green talk fast.  I'd link to it, but this post is already longer than I thought it would be.

If you want the extra credit, write the difference between an island and an archipelago.  Have the adult you read the blog with sign the paper.  Also, tell me if you could find your Gandhi picture in the panoramic picture above.

...Don't forget to check your grades.
