Homework/ Blog post #3

Homework
August, 29/2014

                      This week we learned and did a poster about the 5 themes of geography. I think it was a very fun activity making the poster because Mr. Wenstrand let us use our creativity and combine ideas with other kids. A thing that I thought was challenging was that we had to search for the definitions of the 5 themes of geography because it was hard concluding one when two people had different ideas. This changed how I think of the topic because it helped me get a clearer idea of the topic. This week was very fun and I learned a lot of things.

My Geography blog post

1.    I live in Bogota in a crowded apartment. In the city there are a lot of buildings and roads. There are a lot of people in the streets and also cars. Near were I live there are some parks with a to of trees and rivers in them.

2.   Bogota's precise location is 4.5981° N, 74.0758° W. Bogota's general location is Colombia and South America.  You can describe your general location looking at other parts of Colombia and then describe them all together.

3.   Colombia has in common to other countries in South America that it has rain forest and it has in common the culture because most people in Colombia and some countries in South America have the same religion, eat the same things, play the same sports. Another reason that we have in common with some countries in South America is that we have an awesome soccer team.

4.   The Migration to Colombia has affected us in having more people with no job, making a
our carson footprint bigger, and new ideas have affected our government.

5.   Colombia has changed in some ways due to human influence. Like before our cities weren't so big and didn't require so many jobs and left less carbon footprint. I think that it is possible to make people change because they try to get new jobs. Also people are trying to reduce our impact on the planet so they try to adapt to using less water, less electricity, etc...

           I think that blogger is a very good tool. It is very handy because you can access it in any computer or electronic in the world. It is a very useful tool to do assignments because it is easy to save and to post. What I don't like of blogger is that is hard to put pictures and videos in the blog. Another problem is when your internet is not working. An improvement in the school of using blogger is that we don't use so many papers and it helps the planet.
