This week my partner Alba has transferred me the role of STAR so this week I had to present the class our work.
When we started this second practice about the Treasure Hunt, we were more lost than the last week but we kept trying to last day and we finished with good sensations.
The work for this week is divided in three parts.
The first one is about cartographic projections.
We had presentation for it. Where I supposed to explain: What is a map projection?, the important features of the three map projections ( Robinson Projection, Mercator Projection and Azimuthal Projection) and compare Russia and Australia in this projections and to conclude this point I had to explain why our group have chosen the Robinson projection as the best projection for present in classroom. Also for this presentation we have made a poster with the different projections and the comparisons of the two countries in each map.

Also I would like to say that our group have chosen Russia and Australia because their location and also for their sizes. We can observe perfectly the distortions on them, where a very good example is the Azimuthal Projection in which despite of the fact that Russia has a total area of 17,075,400 square kilometres and Australia a total area of 7.686.850 square kilometres, Australia seems to be bigger and longer than Russia.
The second one is about the Treasure Hunt.
In this part, I would explained : What is a Treasure Hunt and also we have chosen some examples about it. One example is The Parts of the House. It is a easy Treasure Hunt for children of Primary Education.In this exercise children have to look for information about the parts of the house in the given links, in order to response the questions and finally they have to answer the following Big Question:
Which is the most important room for you in your house? Why? Write in your notebook?
With this exercise children learn how to obtain and use for his activities, information from different sites.
The last one is about a media distorted.
For this part, we have chosen some examples, which my partners have published in their post but for the presentation day we have chosen a distortion in a Textbook, where in one of their characters appears a photography of one part of Mexico , but in reality the photography was in another place of Mexico.
Well this was to be the presentation but finally in the presentation’s day all star went together to compare and share information with others to prepare a collective presentation.
Finally all the star could prepare and organize a good presentation, which I think all we learnt something new and interesting.
To conclude I want to say that I really liked to do this exercise and I think that it is a another way of learning that some of us have never used it. And that is all, I really enjoyed having this role , and more this week, and I will see you next week in my next role.
