Week 5 – October 19th, 2015 (Day 2 for Presentations)
Presentations continued tonight.
Tonight there were several presentations that taught us how to teach a variety of the social studies outcomes. I believe that one of the most memorable moments/learning experiences I had tonight was the produces vs. grown presentation. Since our province SK is built on farming and agriculture, I felt that this activity was very important for students to understand how and why something is grown, and how we get such things as foods that come from all over the world, right to our dinner table.
I also found the puzzle piece activity entertaining and was an “ah ha moment” for me as the class pieced all our puzzle pieces together on the wall. I also found the YouTube video “Seven Continents Song” to be quite humorous.
Overall, I found all the presentations pretty fun and engaging to participate in. They all connected to the social studies outcomes outlined and helped me have a better understanding of them.
Great Job Everyone!!
