I’d like to introduce you to Loki, a little birdie friend who will be traveling with me to Ukraine and Turkey. Loki will be my co-star for this blog, and hopefully she will bring to life some of the different places that we visit. She and I just got back from Washington, D.C. and here are some photos of our adventures:
Who is Loki?
Loki helps students in my classes learn about world geography. Every day, we start class by imagining that Loki is traveling to a different location around the world, and students answer a “question of the day” about Loki’s location. As you can see, Loki is a little bird, so it will be easy for her to fly around the world with me! Also, since I have a pet bird at home (a cockatiel) and our school mascot is a bird (a red-tailed hawk), she’ll be perfect company. Here’s a trivia question for blog readers, similar to the ones we do in our classroom. If you think you know the answer, you can submit it in the comments section at the bottom of the post.
In the past week, Loki visited many sites in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Which of the following is NOT pictured in a photo of Loki?
- a) The Capital Building
- b) Gettysburg Battlefields
- c) The White House
- d) The Main Reading Room at the Library of Congress
- e) The National Archives
