Climbing Mt. Everest

May 8, 2018

Crazy to say we are in the month of August! We are just finishing up our chapter on Mt. Everest. In this chapter we looked at a variety of topics; where Mt. Everest is located, why people climb it, how much it costs to climb, the dangers of climbing Mt. Everest and many more. The students ended the chapter by creating blogs of their "trip" climbing Mt. Everest. They really enjoyed making their blogs, especially once we started using the green screen feature on iMovie.  Some of the students really showed their creativity!  This chapter is always one of highlights of every school year, because students who are quieter seem to really embrace this project and express a strong desire to explore the world!
