Classroom of the Week
Mrs. Hatfill, Mrs. Speidel and Ms. Hamilton's Geography Classes
Mrs. Hatfill, Mrs. Speidel and Ms. Hamilton’s Geography classes are incorporating mapping skills with the novel they are reading in class, Whirligig. In the story, the main character has to serve a penance for killing a girl because of drunk driving. Her parents requested that he travel the four corners of the United States building and placing whirligigs that represent their daughter. Along the way, the students are mapping his location as well as other characters, and the locations of where the whirligig was placed. They are doing this by using the program Google Tour Builder. When they have completed the project, they will present their map creations to the class.
