The United Kingdom & Ireland

Today, we are starting a new project on Ireland and the United Kingdom.
We've made four groups in each class, so we have three different groups working on each one of these countries: England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland (including Northern Ireland).
We are now, first of all, finding the countries in google maps, at different scales.

Let's talk about what information we want to find. What things can we investigate about these countries?

We have made a very long list of things but we've shortened it to the following:

map

flag
currency
special celebrations and clothing
monuments and landmarks
languages and accents
food
music and dance
driving


May 5th: we've had several holidays and we haven't worked on this for a while. Now, we take it where we left it.. what were we doing?
Creating mindmaps in class, in groups, and saving photos to our computers

MAKING GLOGSTERS

We are making posters using glogster. In the glogs we'll include all the

information we included into our mindmaps, the photos we saved into our

folders in the computer and videos from youtube.

WE'VE STARTED USING A SOCIAL BOOKMARKING SITE!!!!!!!
Today, we've learned how to use diigo. We are saving the bookmarks we need for our glogs into diigo. It's great!
We use "tags" to classify the webs we want to save. Here are some pictures of us "diigoing" and the link to our library
