World connections

During our morning meeting and snack time, we sometimes take a look at what is going on in the world and connect it to our class:

*In science we are talking about how people design things.  We saw a bit about the landfillharmonic:

We discussed how technology has changed in the past 50 years with this Prezi presentation.

*In general we were talking about how collaboration is now often online.  We saw a bit of the Virtual choirs:

Virtual choir 1Virtual choir 2Virtual choir 3, and Virtual choir 4.

And how some people even “collaborate” with themselves using technology:

Peter Hollens (and by the way, Peter Hollens used these skills as part of the Virtual choirs listed above).

*We are studying magnetism–we saw a bit of the northern lights from the International Space Station:

*We were talking about why we wash our hands before we eat.  NPR has a nice short video about how people catch the flu.
