Homework week 7: Global Websites – Let me introduce you to @kidworldcitizen

Kid World Citizen

This week for homework I would like you to explore a global education website. My good friend Becky Morales runs an amazing website that has great things for students, teachers, parents and anyone thinking globally.

Here is the link   http://kidworldcitizen.org

For your homework I would like you to:

  1. Explore the website and tell me two new things you have learnt.
  2. Find the geography page and share one thing you found.
  3. Leave Becky a message telling her all the things that you really like about her website.

Here is a picture of Becky and her family and a little bit of information from her website about why she started kid world citizen. She is a real inspiration to Mrs Joyce and one day Mrs Joyce hopes she can have a global website to share her passion for learning with others.
