Out of Eden Learn Activity

When you visit your Out of Eden Learn page today you may notice that students from our walking party have responded to your post. It is your turn to do the same. Follow the instructions above. When you are done read the article "Sole Brothers" (above link).  Tell me 3 things you thought of when reading the article (post your response).

Where in the world.....due Fri., Oct. 2nd


I thought this would be an interesting Where In The World (WITW) assignment to begin the year with as it is located close to Burlington. I also thought this structure might be interesting for those of you who are budding artists and design students. Some of you may not know that Toronto has a university (OCAD - Ontario College of Art and Design) where you may choose to explore your creative talents when you graduate high school. You are to focus on The Sharp Centre for Design while researching.

Who are you?
Where are you coming from?
Where are you going?

"These three questions are a feature of the milestones that help string together Paul Salopek's steps around the world: he poses them to the nearest human being he encounters each time he progresses one hundred miles (160km)."
Paul Salopek began his epic journey around the world on foot in 2013.  He began his journey in Ethiopia and will complete his journey at the southern tip of South America some time in 2020.
We are going to join in with thousands of school children across the world and follow Paul's journey in real time.  Our class will be participating in "walking parties" made up of approximately 6 different classes from around the world. We will interact with one another, complete activities, and share work on an "exciting digital platform."
"So sit awhile at the campfire, and warm your hands."
