Movement and Technology-Geography 12

Last Geography class we discussed the Earth's Four spheres - Atmosphere, Biosphere, Hydrosphere, and Lithosphere.  I started today's class with having them take out their phones / ipods etc.  They were instructed to go outside and take a picture of each sphere and to have some fun with it - "Do not go for the obvious."  

Below are examples from one group.  As a whole they were all laughing and having fun.  Students were then asked to explain what their pictures represented.  After that they had to share with another group while they guessed each others spheres.  A number students then emailed me their pictures and I set up a quiz in order to exit the class.

To a student they liked being able to get outside and move, use their technology and express themselves in a different manner. (Post courtesy of Russ Reid)
