The World is So Full of a Number of Things

If you haven’t seen the “Earth As Art” ebook yet, take time to check it out. The pictures are amazing and offer unique perspectives of views both well-known and as yet undiscovered for many of us. You can learn more about this project here: “Earth as Art” info and resources.

Earth As Art

ideas for use in the classroom:

  • see if students can identify each place from its “artistic view”
  • locate each place on a map/globe
  • compare and contrast the “artistic view” with another photo of the place
  • identify elements and principles of art used in each photograph
  • discuss tone(s) and feelings associated with each photo

On the Same Day in March: A Tour of the World's Weather, by Marilyn Singer

On the Same Day in March: A Tour of the World’s Weather, by Marilyn Singer is another one of my favorite books. It can help broaden students’ perspectives as they “journey” around the world exploring the various types of weather and events that can all occur on the same day. It is amazing how varied that one day can be, depending upon where you are on the globe.

To give your students an opportunity to explore this same concept, use the interactive map I put together (click here for pdf file).

MarchMap

By following the links embedded in the map, your students can go on their own adventure around the world to compare the weather in various places on the same day in March.

Create a chart of the findings and/or have students use the data from the webcams to illustrate their own pages of a book based on Singer’s text.

I’ve also added another set of Daily Visual Challenges to my TpT store. First person to contact me gets a free copy. Happy almost spring! 🙂
