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.
- Names of the oceans:
- Southern (Antarctica)
- Names of the big seas.
- Smaller Ones: Black, Dead, Red, Japan
The next thig that we did in class was 2 tasks:
- Find an area as big as you can in your task book.
- Use a pencil to start.
- Once it looks alright, darken the pencil or go over it in pen.
- Just a rough sketch is enough.
- 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.
