Global Classroom Collaboration Online

I am a Technology Integrator for my middle school and can work with students in any subject.

What would you do?

You and your companions have just survived a crash in a small plane. Both the pilot and co-pilot were killed in the crash. It is mid-January, and you are in Northern Canada. The daily temperature is 25 below zero, and the night time temperature is 40 below zero. There is snow on the ground, and the countryside is wooded with several creeks, criss-crossing the area. The nearest town is 20 miles away. You are all dressed in city clothes appropriate for a business meeting. Your group of survivors… Continue

Dear Students,

Today's lesson takes us back in history as we witness and experience what British Prime Minister during World War Two, Winston Churchill's was quoted during a difficult time in world history,"Those who fail to understand history are doomed to repeat it.", and we will find that the events of the past will have an everlasting effect our lives today.
