Discovery Green


See the Assignment (By Kenneth Ware, Jr.):

There are a wide-variety of activities to participate in while visiting Discovery Green located at 1500 McKinney in the heart of Houston. Weekly, the park offers kayaking, music concerts and healthy living activities for all ages.

This Friday, we will focus on some of its features including: The John P. McGovern Playground, Mist Tree, Kinder Lake, Gardens at Discovery Green, Jones Lawn, Simmons Family Stage and Art at Discovery Green.

Using Twitter,  and the hastag #TwitterNewsChat, students will take their followers on an eye-opening journey through the park by posting compelling photos and publishing informative and fun tweets. Each student is expected to post a minimum of 10 newsworthy tweets while at the park. Be creative!

Have your smart phone ready and dress comfortably. If you are unfamiliar with Discovery Green please visit the website. You may find another section of the park you might be more inclined to cover.

I will see you today at 12:45p.m. in front of the Synchronicity of Color. A picture of the “art boxes” is included in this post.

Text/Call/Tweet me if you have any questions. I’m at @KennethWareJr. Check the Blackboard for my telephone number.
