That being said, we do have a test this week over our first unit. The focus of this unit has been the oceans, continents, and mapping. I have shared with each of you the notes we have been using in class. Use this resource, don't abuse it. I share them so you have full access to the information presented in class, but I want you to still take notes from our talks so you know what I believe is the most important information. There is also a review available for you to use to help focus your studies for the test.
Now that the boring stuff is done, how did you enjoy the Google Earth assignment? I love Google Earth because it provides me the opportunity to "visit" places that I desire to travel to at some point in my life. Many of the places to find in the assignment have significance to me as places I have been or want to visit. The Eiffel Tower and Paris may have been the most amazing vacation I have ever taken. To spend time in a world class city with such a vivid history and amazing sights is an opportunity I hope you all have in your lifetime. I included Mount Everest because I love the mountains and will live in the mountains someday, and Mount Everest is the biggest, most majestic mountain in the world to me. And Bora Bora....do I need to explain that at all?
I hope you have dreams and aspirations to get out and experience the world. Our planet has so much beauty and wonder to experience, it would be a shame, nay, a crime to stay tucked away in the bubble of your hometown.
So where do you want to go?
