Geo-Literacy Projects Build Students' Understanding of Our Complex World If interdisciplinary project-based learning is a goal for you and your students this school year, you might want to start with questions that put a premium on place. For example: Where are bicycle accidents most likely to happen in your community? Where's the best spot to watch for migrating Monarch butterflies? What's the safest evacuation route in the event of a natural disaster? How have the neighborhoods of New Orleans changed after Hurricane Katrina? To investigate such questions, students would need to gather and analyze data, look for patterns, think critically, and communicate their understanding with maps and other visual aids.

Crayon Rocks We've had a very, very warm winter here in Michigan. With such little snow, the ground has been exposed and my little rock hounds have been collecting rocks again. I thought we'd revisit the types of rocks again (sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous) - but this time give them a more active and visual way to think about how each are formed. There are many examples of creating rocks from crayons, but this pdf from the the Exploratorium is very helpful. Guess the Travel Destination! Inspiration for your next Break No matter what your budget allows, we will help you save your pennies. Lovers of a luxury board basis such as full-board or all-inclusive will rejoice when they see the choice.

Early world maps Antiquity Babylonian Imago Mundi (c. 600 BCE) A Babylonian world map, known as the Imago Mundi, is commonly dated to the 6th century BCE.[1][2] The map as reconstructed by Eckhard Unger shows Babylon on the Euphrates, surrounded by a circular landmass showing Assyria, Urartu (Armenia)[3] and several cities, in turn surrounded by a "bitter river" (Oceanus), with seven islands arranged around it so as to form a seven-pointed star. The accompanying text mentions seven outer regions beyond the encircling ocean. The descriptions of five of them have survived:[4] the third island is where "the winged bird ends not his flight," i.e., cannot reach.on the fourth island "the light is brighter than that of sunset or stars": it lay in the northwest, and after sunset in summer was practically in semi-obscurity.The fifth island, due north, lay in complete darkness, a land "where one sees nothing," and "the sun is not visible."

The special packed lunch, the bus ride, the opportunity to pair up with a “field trip buddy” for the day all helped make those journeys unforgettable. While traditional field trips continue to offer opportunities to create memorable learning environments for students of all ages, a new wave of technologies have created new, virtual field trip (VFT) experiences. Through a VFT, an educator leverages digital content and educational technologies to take educators and students beyond their classroom walls to meet people and see places they might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.

Similar to Traveller IQ Challenge, GeoGuessr (2014) allows the user to guess where a certain location (image of a landscape) may be in the world. The user examines the landscape and then guesses the location in the world by clicking on a map of the world on their believed location. It then calculates how far from the accurate location the user guessed as an answer. It is another visually stimulating tool and adds fun to basic understanding of places in the world. It also allows the teaching of the different landscapes in the world as demonstrated by the Australian curriculum. References GeoGuessr. (2014). Let's explore the world.
