Learning from my teammates

Our new landing page has been posted. The landing page will let you know more about the expedition and the people I will be working with. I'm excited to learn from my fellow Earthwatch volunteers, and I've already found some interesting links on their pages.

In the picture my students are playing "Oh Deer!" a game that shows how animal populations are effected when they do or don't find what they need to survive. Click on the title of this posting to get rules for "Oh Deer!" One student (the deer) found water which is what she needed. So, she lived and the deer population will grow. Climate change can effect the habitats of animals and therefore can change plants and animal populations in an area.

It's the Moose!


Thanks to those of you who answered the last question. The correct answer to the animal with the largest set of antlers is the moose. I've been reading up on my destination, and everyday I get more excited about the trip! My airline tickets have been reserved and I've made contact with the others I will be working with. Now I have to get serious about pulling my packing list together.

We're getting SKYPE installed on the classroom computer, so we'll soon practice with Ms. Vieau and my dad. We want to make sure that we know what we're doing!
