Globe trotting in Guided Reading

We read about Wonders of the World and looked up on the globe where we might find some of the places. We discussed continents and countries.In free reading, other members of 2 Dahl enjoyed looking at maps of the world. 


In Guided Reading we made up questions about the book we had read. 2 Dahl found one particular book really fascinating. The whole class wanted to find out more about the Marianas Trench so we googled some facts and watched a short video about James Cameron’s voyage to the bottom of the ocean. We also had a wonder question about Mount Everest…why is it hard to breathe at the top of Mount Everest? The class came up with some super explanations. Great thinking and learning.
