This week, we talked about the importance of learning about our neighbors to the south. We did some map work together and also saw some pictures of what Latin America looks like. After a powerpoint presentation, map work, notes and a fun game, we are ready to move on to learn about the beauty of the Aztec, Maya and the Inca civilizations.

Today, we got to prepare for the midterm elections. We sat in groups and discussed opinions and political positions. One student said, "electing candidates is like picking one's fantacy football line up." Posted by Picasa
Learning about the candidate is an important part of the election process. The students got to research each midterm candidate and each proposal before voting.
Voting becomes much more interesting when one understands the Politcal issues. Posted by Picasa
