Reviewing and Summarizing

After viewing a website, review the notes you made. Look up the meaning of any words you guessed. Then summarize what you learned.

  • How many words did you recognize?
  • Which new words or expressions did you learn?
  • What connections did you make to what you are learning in other subjects, such as geography, history, math, or science?
  • What are the similarities and differences with your own community or region?
