First unit description

One of the most challenging parts of our unit (5 themes of Geography) was the explanation of each one of those, because you could think of an obvious example or meaning but you needed to be more specific on the description. On 6th grade, I didn't try to specify the examples. When me and my group were discusing the 5 themes of geography, we needed a lot of thinking to get a good grade and to say accurately the definitions of them, and how to put the pictures in the right spot witin their caption of the definition.

Home Geography

I live in a 1 floor apartment with my mother, in a nice and safe neighborhood called Rosales in Bogota, surrounded by big trees and a mountain stream. It is 2 blocks walking down the school. 

Colombia has a lot in common with other Central and South American countries because almost all of this countries have a great variety of fruits, coffee,flowers,and jungles. Also there is Soccer that every country plays and many other things that central and south america have in common because they are closer than the other countries. The majority of countries speak spanish and many people are catholic. 

The majority of south america had been colonized by Spain and their culture can be seen in Colombia, they gave us the lenguage that's Spanish, some types of food, the religion and tradition. Many visitors have been coming more and more to Colombia so some of their culture has stayed here.

One of the most influencive things is that Colombia has a constant war against "Las Farc" and they are kidnapping and taking farmers into the city with nothing to live and they have to stay in the streets, and thats a failure for our economy. Also we are contaminating our environment by leaving trash in the floor and the gas of the cars is affecting the ozone layer. And very few people are willing to change it.

Warm Up

In Online Blogs I don't like that the teacher can put an assignment in a day to day basis, I prefere it to be in projects and really important work that needs to be saved.
I like that you can decorate it, edit it and you can customize it however you want.
We could make it better by each one of us agrees on having assignments on it. (Voting)
