The first lesson was a success. I started the class with introduction of Ryan and myself, followed by each of the student introducing themselves. I gave an overview of the year and then started the environmentalism and Jaudism intro lesson. How the lesson was organized was I read a text from the Torah and ask them to tell me how this invoked an environmental ethic. The students would talk with their groups. Following two minutes each group shared their answers. I was pleasantly surprised by how much they enjoyed the discussion and the accuracy and thoughtfulness of their answers. We did this about 4 times. We then created hydroponics systems.
Hebrew- We did an assessment of the students Hebrew followed by a jeopardy game.
