Today we are learning a new song from Peru called “El Condor Pasa” which means the Condor Passes By.
LEADING QUESTIONS FOR POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS:
How long do these birds live?
Where is the range of their territory?
What do they eat?
How long is their wingspan?
How do the female and male condors differ?
What is their predator?
What is the biggest challenge facing these birds environmentally?
Before our students saw JR’s film Ellis, we asked that question.Almost half of our student audience had their hands up. During a staff development period last week, we screened the short film narrated and starring Robert DeNiro (and the artwork of JR). We spoke about some of the leading questions that we would ask in class after the film.
