Today we took a step back from our study of history and reconnected with our work at the beginning of the year. I was pleased with how much you remembered about the globe. Today we discussed meta-cognition (thinking about how we think) and tried to understand why things are the way they are. In 8-1 we even turned out the lights and used a flashlight to "experience" the seasons in an attempt to understand why there are equinoxes and radical solstices in the upper and lower latitudes. Good work - no homework.
