Are you familiar with the My Wonderful World Blog?
In this geography education-themed web journal from National Geographic Education we discuss a range of topics from current-event connecttions to teaching strategies to geographic curiousities.
We have recently introduced some new recurring features to the blog. In addition to the well-established "Five for Friday," weekly round-ups, we have now added a "Monday-Funday Photo" and "Wednesday Word of the Week" to spark classroom discussions.
This week's photo blog featured images snapped by National Geographic magazine "Your Shot" contributors of their dogs in the snow. It posed the question: What factors might affect how pets react to different environments and weather conditions?
Today's word of the week is village, describing the communities at the center of life throughout much of the rural world. Do you know what makes a village distinct from a hamlet or town? Find out!
We invite you to visit the My Wonderful World blog, add it to your bookmarks, and join in the conversation about geography topics of the day!
