The first student blog I visited in March was TomJoe's. He is a student in Mr. Harris's class at Pt England School in Auckland, NZ. His post was about a trip he took to Lake Taupo. He seemed very excited about his trip. I love reading what's on the mind of students and asking them questions about their posts. It is very exciting when I get an answer. I asked TomJoe to tell me more about what it was like at Taupo. I hope I get a response.
My second visit to student blogs took me to Room 14 Explorers. They are a year 5/6 class in Tauranga, New Zealand. The post I read was called:
How Is Culture Reflected Through The Arts?
In this blog post there is a short video displaying the art work of the students. I was really impressed. The art is a result of what the students have learned about ancient Greek culture. I think that the work shows they have a good understanding of the subject matter. Ancient Greece produced some amazing art. I didn't learn about it until college and was pleased by their inspired artwork. I left a comment praising the work for the kids. Needless to say my comment was accompanied by many similar ones. Nice job Room 14 Explorers!
