TYPE II & III WEBQUEST PART IIITIME ZONES & TIMELINE
Welcome to our Webquest Part III.We measure the day by saying that the sun is at its highest point at 12 oclock, midday. Because the earth spins, as it travels around the sun, one half of the earth is in darkness and one half in light, all the time. This brings us to a problem. If it is middaywhere you are, on the opposite side of the earth, it is dark, so what time is it on the opposite side of the world? We invite you to learn about time zones & time lines.
Task 1: Read about What are Time Zones By Cindy Grigg and answer the questions in your notebook (you can print and paste in your notebook!).Task 2: Display differences in time zones, use several clocks to show different hours at different places. For example, clock A can show 8 a.m. in Hawaii, Clock B can show 11 a.m. in Los Angles, Clock C can show 7 p.m. in London, etc.).
Task 3: Check the following websiteand take notes.http://www.wisc-online.com/objects/ViewObject.aspx?ID=SOC3702Task 4. Answer questions on slides 10 to 15. Remember to justify your answers in your notebook using the map.http://www.wisc-online.com/objects/ViewObject.aspx?ID=SOC3702
A timeline is a way of displaying a list of events inchronological order, sometimes described as a projectartifact. It is typically a graphic design showing a long barlabeled with dates alongside itself and (usually) eventslabeled on points where they would have happened.Task 5. Make a timeline about the time zones history.Research the sites from b-le@rning. Use the links from b-le@rning to build your online timeline.
