Today, I updated my EAL Science blog as I have just begun teaching an EAL Science class and am excited to have the students do an excellent Webquest I found. Yes, Webquests still exist and there are some good ones out there. My challenge was always finding ones that were 100% relevant to what I wanted to accomplish and I found the perfect one for teaching about biomes and animals adaptations. Here's a screen shot of my EAL Science Blog.
I should also mention that I will be introducing students to Google Docs through this project as well as a yet-to-be-determined Scrapbooking program (suggestions are welcome!) and Fotobabble. I considered Three Ring but it's really more for publishing already existing projects. I hope to add some of their work to Three Ring, however, and begin creating an online portfolio for students. There are so many possibilities..I just wish I had more time in the day.
Also, I am hoping to blog about our fun pumpkin tart making that we will be doing tomorrow morning. A great way to teach English is by just doing things and I love incorporating our local culture and traditions into student learning. It's my first time making pumpkin tarts so it should be an interesting experience!
Thanks for reading,
