Weekly Blog Topics

Week 4- May 23rd-27th

  • Did you know that we have over 1,000 students participating in the 2016 Global Blogging Challenge from many places around the world? That is a lot of talented and unique kids! So, this week your challenge is to teach us something. Think of a special talent or skill that you have, a unique food or item that you can make, or anything else that you are awesome at, and teach us about it!

  • This challenge can be completed with written words, pictures, video, screenshots, screencasting, etc.
    • If you are creating a video or screencasting, you cannot "just wing it". You need to have a plan and script prepared.

Week 3- May 16th-20th

  • If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? How would you use your superpower for good and how could it help the world?

Week 2- May 9th-13th

  • What is something very special about where you live? Topics can range from your own home, city, state, province, territory, region, or country. Be sure to tell us about your special place and and what makes it so special?

Week 1- May 2nd-6th
  • Since we are just getting to know each other, it only makes sense to have the first week's challenge be introductions. Tell us a little about yourself to give us a sense of who you are.

      • Possible Organizer: Concept Web
      • Not sure where to start? Here are a few stem questions:
        • Who are you? Where are you from? What do you love most about your home? What are your passions, dreams, or goals? What are your favorite things? What is important to you? What embarrasses you? What scares you? What are your likes and dislikes?
  • You are welcome to answer any/all/none of these questions.
  • Still stuck? Try the poem below!
