On Friday, students continued to work on their GPS+Camera Projects. Biology students began taping their video-guides of Codrington Lagoon’s four types of mangroves, Social Studies students continued their ethnographic interviews with elders in the community, and History/Geography students analyzed their sources, determined gaps in their knowledge, designed interviews with community members and visiting archaeologists for Monday, and started to script their presentations. In between working on their projects, students watched their three Houses (Cedar, Logwood, and Lignum Vitae) compete in a round-robin basketball tournament. Students used their newly learned photography skills to record the game. Some highlights are included above.
