VTS Chalk Talk and a Google Earth Tour!

In the first week of school 7th grade students in Miss Lukins's class enjoyed a "sneak peek" into World Geography by participating in a VTS Chalk Talk and a Google Earth tour! Using another VTS (Visible Thinking Strategies) strategy, students explained in writing and discussed in small and whole groups what they saw, thought, and wondered about artistic images on posters and 3D structures on Google Earth, which included the Roman Colosseum, the terraced civilization at Machu Picchu, and natural wonders such as Mt. Fuji in Japan. Enjoy a sneak peek of their participation below...
