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
- I’m sure I could figure out math with the help of a math teacher
- Language – symbolic language
- Human history
- Natural history
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).
