1. Think about/do your science fair
2. Consider ways in which social software, like blogs and wikis, could be used to enrich our inquiry unit on ancient egypt.
Inquiry units are designed by you to answer your questions. What fascinates you about ancient egypt? you will develop questions during the knowledge attack phase of the inquiry - the part at the start where you experience heaps of information on the topic then begin to wonder about certain aspects of it - like for me, with my grandad's experiences there during the war. i really wnat to know why he found the great pyramid spooky. and why he thinks there are no ankhs left and that there is something mysterious under the sphinx. he says the pyramids are aligned to mirror a certain constellation. apparently sirius or orion are significant. why?
all very interesting to me. but you might like to find out something else.
i hope to use internet tools, social software, cameras, drawings, cartoons, comics, interviews, documentaries, letters, postcards, make buildings, etc to learn and present my findings.
i can't wait!
