March 3: Students stated Unit 4 using thematic maps to study the location, climate, and its impact on where people live and the work they do (including the impact on the environment). Students just started this today, so their HW is to study Mexico's location, climate, and natural resources, the parts that they were able to get to. Please see my photos/documents tab for the Unit 5 PowerPoint if they need that to help them study.
March 4: Students should complete either their book review using the CRCT or the thematic maps over the location, climate, and natural resources for the following countries: Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, and Canada. They should study their completed sections for HW.
March 5th: Students will switch to different tables to complete their thematic map or the CRCT guided notes over the location, climate, and natural resources. Please study the sections you complete for HW.
March 6th: Students will receive PowerPoint notes over the environmental issues of air pollution in Mexico City, Mexico, oil pollution in Venezuela, and deforestation in the Brazilian Rainforest, as well as the pollution of the Great Lakes in Canada and destruction of the timber within the Canadian Shield. Students will then choose from the different types of assessment tasks to show their understanding of how production, distribution, and trade effects the environment. These different tasks will be worked in class after each days PowerPoint opening. If students are not finished with a task they should work on it at home as a part of their HW. Students should study their PowerPoint notes.
March 7th: Students will receive PowerPoint notes over an environmental issue and given time to work on their performance task in class. They should use time at home to complete their task if they are falling behind in class.
