Hey families! We have another exciting week on it's way at the "World Cafe" - where friends meet to explore the social and natural world!
Social Studies: This week, we will conclude our study of Geography and the Environment by answering the big question: "Who's in control? The Environment or Mankind?". Students will use their research on natural disasters, diseases, and natural resources/ trade to give both nature and mankind a final "arm-wrestling match score".
From there, we will be moving on to our study of Demographics and Migration. The new big question is: "Should countries actively seek to limit migration?" We will be exploring demographic factors used to describe populations (literacy rate, birth rate, death rate, average life expectancy, etc.), factors that drive humans to migrate / immigrate (war, famine, job seeking, family opportunity) . Pack your bags and get ready to act out historical and modern global movement!
This week we will test our homemade anemometers and barometers! We will also explore the effect of global and local winds on the weather! Ask your kids towards the end of the week about all of our outdoor observations including cloud cover, humidity, wind speed, and barometric pressure!
Thanks and here's to another great week!
