After looking at many blogs, I finally found one that caught my eye and connected with me. It is titled "Get Lost". http://lovebeinglost.wordpress.com/
Now, at first I have to admit, I might be a little attracted to the title, since I am/was a huge fan of the TV show, LOST. However, that is not what this blog is about.
In this blog, the teacher is connecting his travels to topics that he addresses in social studies. What a great way to make a connection to history, cultures, social issues, etc. Connecting social studies content and topics to to real life. I think the students would would really enjoy this and be very willing to interact with their teacher on this blog. Plus, it give you some very could questions to ponder.
