Today we continued our discussion of culture - and what makes a culture.
But we also spent a lot of time on the continents. Since the majority of students have aced their continents and oceans test, we can spend some time deconstructing all the ideas they have built up during the course of their education thus-far.
If you want to know exactly what I meant, you'll have to watch this video... We watched it twice:
P.S. Now, I know some of you are here to see the video from the activity. The other day we went around the school using latitude and longitude to guide us. It went really well. It gauged how well students knew latitude and longitude, but it also showed them how to follow a map. Like I said at the top, it was edited by Mr. Jerlecki's Digital Media Corp. That was nice, because it gave me some free time, and allowed them to have added practice video editing. Win-win. Check it out if you have time. Maybe you're even in it!
