Where in the World?

Bon anniversaire, Mademoiselle Marshall!  Our seventh grade French teacher extraordinaire is celebrating her birthday today.  As part of the birthday celebration, French 7 students learned about a new, ongoing project called Where in the World.  In order to expand their horizons beyond Pioneer's walls, students will be putting their Internet searching skills to the test in order to locate points of interest in the French-speaking world.

Don't adjust your screen settings!  This is actually a pink lake.

After a discussion about keyword searching and the importance of being a savvy searcher, students learned about the links on the library's Symbaloo that would help with this project.

And in case you were curious, the pink lake is called Lake Retba and is located in Senegal, a country in Africa.  The pink color is due to a high salt content and the creatures that live in the lake!  Next up for French 7 students is an Internet trip to Virunga National Park.
