Mapping and Africa
Our social studies and science focus for January and February is mapping and Africa. We have used google earth to see where our school is in Damariscotta. We also "traveled" all the way to Tanzania and Zanzibar to see the difference between and city and rural area. Students are excited and engaged in our study. Mr. O, our classroom Ed tech has a lot of experience in mapping and orienteering from his time at Unity college. He is using that expertise to teach our class about maps and compasses. Yesterday, students created a map and brought it home to share. We are looking forward to working more with Mr. O on Monday as he introduces a compass.
