Pumpkin Geography

Pumpkin Geography | End prohibition because | Scoop.it

"After spending a month becoming familiar with the location of the seven continents and the major bodies of water, each student is given a pumpkin to turn into a globe. Students paint the entire surface of the pumpkin blue to represent water. Next, they use pushpins to position and trace the outline of each continent onto their pumpkins. They use actual globes as models and are careful to place the continents in the correct hemisphere. Then, they paint and label each continent a different color. They label the major bodies of water and use white paint to represent the North and South Poles."

I love Halloween and all that goes with it, especially pumpkins. This is such a clever idea.

What a fun way to celebrate Halloween in the history/geography classroom.

New Zealand’s bold experiment with regulating recreational drugs

New Zealand’s bold experiment with regulating recreational drugs | End prohibition because | Scoop.it

The world should closely watch what happens next. If implemented carefully, New Zealand’s new laws offer the first genuinely scientific and public health-oriented approach to dealing with the negative aspects of humanity’s eternal quest for consciousness alteration. Anthropology tells us that getting high is universal — no culture, no matter how remote, lacks chemical experimentation.

Review Drug Policy: End Prohibition Because it's Wrong.

The history is a matter of public record via http://www.hansard-archive.parliament.uk/... just search 'ganja'. In about 1880, the UK treasury got wind that many natives in Colonial India used ganja spiritually, medically, recreationally and didn't drink alcohol, negatively affecting burgeoning alcohol tax revenue projections. At the time UK politicians knew nothing of cannabis... so commendably commissioned a thorough, well resourced, far reaching report http://digital.nls.uk/indiapapers/browse/pageturner.cfm?mode=gallery&id=74464868&sn=368
