Welcome to Shakespeare's Globe theater of Adjectives! Prepare ye, Prepare ye! Sir [or Lady] approaches along the trail near this castle. Gather your adjective insults and propel them forward upon his arrival! The following words all come from the writings of William Shakespeare. Combine one word from each of the columns below; add "Thou" to the beginning, and there is an insult fitted for hurling at your English teacher. Let yourself go; mix and match to find that "perfect" barb from the Bard! Column "A" Column "B" Column "C"
younker Are ya' lost? Heck no, we've got... M A P a n d G L O B E SKILLS! As a way to remember you learning, let’s design a country of your very own! Yes that's right, you are the creator of a brand new country, complete with geographic forms, a government, a history with heroes and legends, a constitution, industries and points of interest. Expectations/Objectives A. You are to draw, color or somehow create an original country on a map that
includes these items as part of the map:
a legend showing towns, airports, industries, rivers, railroads, etc.
a scale showing how many miles and how many kilometers there are per inch
a grid around the edges, using letters and numbers, and a separate listing of the cities and points of interest and their reference code. (Example: Hang-glider's Leap, G - 8) If you would like to set up a latitude and longitude map instead of a grid, you may. Remember to use the correct cardinal directions and degree values (Example: Hang-glider's Leap 25oN, 115oW)
a smaller elevation map off to the side that shows the elevations of your country in different colors. Make sure that if you have a mountain of a certain height, you have matched your elevation color key to the same height. Set-up the color key then draw a miniature map of your country next to it with the colors in the appropriate places.
a smaller climate map off to the side that shows the climate of your country in different colors. Make sure that if you have any kind of geographic form that would affect the weather patterns(like tall mountains, volcano, ocean, desert, etc.) you have the right climate for that area. Again, set up the color key then draw a miniature map of your country next to it with the colors in the appropriate places.
Finally on the map, your country should include one clearly labeled(on map or separate listing) example of each of the following land forms: peninsula, bay, fjord, island, plain, canyon, gulf, isthmus, plateau, cape, harbor, lake, river, delta, inlet, mountain range, sea, strait, valley You may make your country out of clay, paper mache, or salt and flour paste, or you may draw and color it on large-size posterboard. B. In addition to the physical formation of a new country, you need to consider the history and culture of your country. In the presentation of your country, have a written history of your country that includes the following parts:
a brief explanation of how this country came to be(independence won, legend, etc.)
a description of at least 3 famous people of your country that somehow contributed to its growth or culture in some way, i.e. heroes, inventors, leaders, etc.
