Your students will be working with students in other locations.
Place a map large enough to show all of your partners' locations on a
bulletin board. Have students identify the location of each of the sites
with a brightly colored pin. Use the World Almanac, references, or encyclopedias
to gather information related to your special Learning Circle theme. Help
students use the map to make predictions about their partners. Encourage
students to think of questions that they would like to ask the students
in other places. You may want to save these prediction to share with your
students at the end of Learning Circle Interaction.
