Our first transportation padlet is below 


Day 2 was a visit to the Island Airport.

Our day included the fascination of taking the tunnel that was built to increase efficiency to the airport.

Working in the porter learing centre on our learning logs (lights out and the runaway outside the window - pretty cool!)

Posing for some pics.

And wondering how our bus got stuck on the island while we were back on the mainland - life is an experience!

Day 2 Padlet is asking  you to comment  on your learning  and  analyze. You should also aim to research  something  further  on your point. 


For example, if it was Day 1, I could write


I learned  that  Pearson has an operating  budget of  36 billion. This is the largest Beyond the Classroom operating  budget we've  heard  of  this  year. Sick Kids had a $790 Million  Budget.  I decided to research further about Pearson's budget and  I found online that Pearson has  revenue of over 1.1 billion  and expenses of over 1 billion. Their profit is 7 million. I am going to follow up with  Andrew at West Jet to get clarification  on the operating budget.



Time to start working  on our final artifact. Here's an example and template for you to use.
