I watched video #1 and I thought it was very interesting. It was a great way to show what we are going to be learning about. I am really looking forward to learning about it.

I watched video #3 and it's crazy how one video can give us so much information. I am so excited to learn new things this year and get educated with all of this stuff.

“ The U.S. is basically an overcompensating, attention-seeking brat.”
Via Arlis Groves
Utah Geographical Alliance's insight:
Good way to show bias with maps, get kids interested in perspective, and discuss who makes different maps and why, what benefits maps can have in identifying how we view places, how that gets engrained in our conscious and what different maps effect countries.

Human Development Index variation

Human Development Index variation | April Utah Geographic Alliance Newsletter | Scoop.it
"Here's how the United States looks when it is measured on the county level by the same standards used to rank countries by the UN, the Human Development Index. Five variables are taken into account: life expectancy, income per capita, school enrollment, percentage of high school graduates, and percentage of college graduates."
Via Seth Dixon
Utah Geographical Alliance's insight:
Interesting to think about and realize that within our own country, or state, there is such a difference in living standards, and education. Another interesting thing to do would be to compare this map to others of the U.S. like political party maps, obesity maps, etc and see what similarities and differences apply.

Teaching Kids about Global Poverty

Teaching Kids about Global Poverty | April Utah Geographic Alliance Newsletter | Scoop.it
"Living on One Dollar is a full-length documentary made by four college students who traveled to rural Guatemala to live on just a dollar a day. Upon their return, they created Living On One, a nonprofit to raise awareness and inspire action around global issues like hunger and poverty -- and started by publishing the Change Series of video shorts. I found it so compelling I've dedicated this whole film fest to it. Each episode not only succinctly frames an issue faced by people in the developing world and makes it personal, but also offers resource links to learn more -- and even better -- to do something about it."

Angel's Landing in Utah's Zion National Park (map) is one of my favorite hikes with an amazing view.The geomorphology of 'red rock' country is stunning and it's sheer cliffs are bound to captivate the imagination.  If you want something like this but with a more European flavor, watch National Geographic's Andrew Evans climb Preikestolen in Norway.
