Students finished their keynote presentations this week and did a great job. Using the iPad for this project makes it almost foolproof to accomplish and it was fun to see the many examples students were able to find.
As we were working on our keynotes, we also looked up major deserts and mountain ranges of the world. We will continue these investigations next week as we discover major world seas, and rivers.
Finally, last week I introduced my Peru trip to students and we were able to talk about water quality. Students also completed their first map of the year, a map of Peru. It was a good introductory map for them to learn mapping skills, since their next map will be a much more challenging map of the world.
