Scribe Post #2 Isabella Farhat

1. After introducing the schedule, we moved on to reviewing what we learned last class. 
                             - We went over the vocab words that we learned last class (porosity, permeability,        water table). 
                             - We answered why groundwater was important.

    2.    a. After going over that, people volenteered to write on the board something they know about the ocean. 
           Basic knowledge:

  1. Names of the oceans:

  1. Atlantic
  2. Pacific
  3. Indian
  4. Arctic
  5. Southern (Antarctica)

  1. Names of the big seas.
    1. Mediterranean
    2. Caribbean
    3. Smaller Ones: Black, Dead, Red, Japan

The next thig that we did in class was 2 tasks:

  1. Find an area as big as you can in your task book.
    1. Use a pencil to start.
    2. Once it looks alright, darken the pencil or go over it in pen.
    3. Just a rough sketch is enough.

  1. Label the oceans: Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic and Southern

Pictures of student drawings:

Task #2: Based upon clues predict the following global circular surface ocean currents.
Use simple arrows to show the direction and path of the ocean currents.
The major surface currents are circular.

             After drawing, we made a experiment to see how the ocean moves, and we also talked about the global ocean currents. We also saw a digital version of the wind currents around the world.

  1. Hey Isa
    I read your post and it is a very interesting and attracting post. A post which does not get the reader bored, with so many images it enhances the post and attracts the reader. I really liked how you have your short explanations which were enough and than added pictures which added more content so we could understand better. I don't really think that there is much you could improve besides maybe trying to add better descriptions to the pictures. Maybe try to explain your pictures instead of just publishing them with no additional information such as, what this pic means, or why is it important, etc. Summing up, be proud of yourself it was a good blogpost.
