Friday at the Reunion – and a teaching idea

I’m still posting at my travel blog, but the Friday morning experience got me thinking about central subject.

Here is the full Friday post : of Atlatls and Tomahawks

But what has got me thinking was the visit to the Jeffers petroglyphs.  If I lived near this site I would connect my curriculum to it.  What can you teach utilizing this site?

  • Geography and Cartography
  • Geology
  • Biology
  • I’m sure I could figure out math with the help of a math teacher
  • Language – symbolic  language
  • Storytelling
  • Human history
  • Natural history
  • Art
  • Music

So the challenge for me is to find a place or thing that is connected to my world in Chicago that we do NOT do in the lower school that can be as comprehensive for us (or just a way to connect our work in the English classroom).

    That is the sign of a great teacher. Always thinking of different ways to help the kids learn. I wish my kid could study with u

      Lovely compliment – thank you – I’m only trying to be the teacher that I wish I had had. Thank you, by the way, for making me laugh out loud regularly and being there with me in spirit as I too no longer can afford my cleaning lady and swab my own toilets.
