There is a great resource on Bloggit that can help you with your homework and is very interesting. It’s in Spanish but it’s a resource that is for members of the library. You need your library card to access these resources. Just go to the INTERNET category of Bloggit and click on “Recursos en Liña” Then enter your library membership number (on your card) and you will be able to see videos and information about many subjects.

This week’s Bloggit session will be about Space and the Solar System. We will hold a Space Quiz to test our knowledge about this fascinating topic and we will even create our own aliens. If you are not able to attend the session, you can click on the links below to do the quiz and the alien.
On Saturday we will have our 2nd Bloggit session and we are going to be talking about the Universe.
This week NASA confirmed that water particles have been found on the moon. This could be very important for space investigations. Here is a short video about the mssion.
Wordle is a great application that lets you create art from words. You write words or copy and paste text, a poem, song lyrics, etc. Then press GO and Wordle will create an interesting picture which you can modify by changing the colours, fonts or direction of the text. It’s great fun!
Look at this one that we created with the text in this post.
Click on Wordle and try it.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, World War I ended, after four years of war.
Remembrance Day is held on the 11th November every year to remember all the people who died in the two World Wars and other conflicts.
At this time of year artificial poppies are sold to mark Remembrance Day and people wear them on their jackets and coats. Everyone wears them even on the television.
The Berlin Wall was built in 1961 to separate East and West Germany. Life in East Germany was strict and very different to life in West Germany. On the 9th November 1989, the people decided that they didn’t want this wall anymore and they got together to pull it down.
Today 20 years later they celebrated this historical event with the fall of a wall of giant dominoes painted by school children and artists around the world. The result was impressive!!
Today was the first Bloggit session and it was very interesting. Most children use the internet regularly but not so many know how to use it properly!! Together we learned about the benefits and dangers of the internet and we all contributed by writting a comment (in English!!) and having it published on Bloggit.
Bloggit is open to everybody and anybody can contribute to Bloggit by sending comments.
So, don’t forget to check Bloggit regularly for news and activities.
The next session is on the 21st November – remember to get your invitation.
