For Teachers


This wiki is a place for your students to learn about timezones and what is happening to children in other places during the day. Your students can add a column to the 2010-2011 Time Zone Chart page, following the format of the example that is there. You can have your students work in groups or individually to create content to show us what they are doing during each hour of the day. They can make a video, an animoto, a podcast, a VoiceThread, etc. and add this to the pages linked off the Time Zone Chart. If you have time, please follow the same format for the 2010-2011 Month by Month page on the wiki. Let's discover how different we all are or how similar we all are.

Please be sure all work is created by your students. Let them research times in their area compared to GMT. Let them find out what GMT is and why we use it. This should be a student created wiki.

You can find out your time zone time compared to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) here.
