Lesson 11: Across Siberia to North America
« on: November 02, 2010, 03:27:23 pm »
I'm not sure how many of you are actually using this textbook but I made a prezi for this lesson that is open access for anyone to view here... http://prezi.com/xg7folhfcsrh/lesson-11-across-siberia-to-north-america/ It covers landforms, comparatives and superlatives, and phone conversations.  Hopefully this will be helpful to those of you who are teaching out of this book.  Enjoy~!

Thanks so much for posting, Sheila!

I'm sure I will use at least some of this presentation when I start 11 next week.
You rock.

Yeah not an easy lesson to cover. I made a short "trivia" powerpoint to go along with the text book material - some of it is the same as what's in the text book, but is more interesting and interactive than just reading out of the book.

I'm working on making a powerpoint that talks a bit about Vitus Bering and some famous explorers - not a complete biography or anything, just some basic background info. I will try to post when I'm done.

You may also consider taking a look at these resources which were previously available on the subject of comparatives and superlatives... http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,751.0.html        or here...
http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,390.0.html        as well as...
http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,500.0.html        or popular this year...
http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,1557.0.html

One way you could also consider opening up the class is to play them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN-sZTmHuLY    or

The first is Korean middle school kids and the second is hilarious and fascinating for the kids to watch.  Okay, well enjoy your lessons folks~!

I hate this textbook SO much. I'm supposed to get two weeks out of just the 'Dialogue' section and from next week, my 3rd graders will have done their final exams and will no longer need to study....so all help is much appreciated!

Shelia - Thanks a ton for the prezi! I've never used it before but it looks great!

Lemon Water - Thanks for posting your trivia presentation too!

I took the information from the great work you guys did and put it into a Lucky Wheel game template. I also added a few questions about the dialogue and phone stuff just to fill in all the questions. I also made a distinction between tallest mountain & longest river in North/South Korea.

Banana - I hate this book too. I'm just going to use the Lucky Wheel game & the presentations by Shelia and Lemon Water for my lesson. However, if I have any extra time then I'm going to play the mobile madness game online. I would also show the "idk my bff Jill" commercial from whatever company to go along with texting language. Students love playing the mobile madness game. There are also a few listening activity websites that you could do too.

Just taught this for the first time and it went surprisingly ok. Most of the content I stole form here anyway but here it is if anyone needs it!
