Edublogs Blogging Challenge: Week 8 Highlights

Spider KidWeek 8: Schooling

This week Miss W. points out that…

There are many different types of schools around the world. Most of the students in the challenge go to a government or public school, I think. But some are homeschooled like Warrior Kat and Ghost Soldier. Visit their school blog written by their mother. We have some students go to specific religious schools yet others go to international schools.

This week’s activity options include posts (based on prompts & questions), surveys, photo collages and interviews related to school. Some of the activities include interesting links or videos about schools and students around the world for inspiration. Check out the original post for Week 8 for more details about activity options.


Preparation for the Commenting Game started last week and begins this week. (See Week 7 Highlights)

The main thing you need before starting is a blog roll on your side bar with at least 5 other (non-SIS) student blogs linked.

Game rules for COUNT OUT THREE

Here are the instructions:

  1. Click on a blog on the student list – count one
  2. Now click on a blog from their blogroll – count two
  3. Finally click on a blog from that blogroll – count three
  4. Leave a comment on an interesting post at this third blog.
  5. Repeat process at least three times


Optional Activity: Write your own post saying which blogs you visited and which posts you left a comment on. Why did you choose that post? Remember to include a link back to the post you left a comment on so that student gets a pingback or trackback.
