20 Days and Counting...

This week was another exciting one in room 148 and around Aquila! My students practiced Skyping with Miss O'Brien's class on Tuesday and on Thursday they were able to show Principal Nielsen how to Skype!

We deepened our inquiries into the mammals of Nova Scotia as we made a tree map of the animals we will likely study while in the filed. The students decided they wanted to know about:
* What size they are
* What they eat
* Where they live
* How they protect themselves
* What their babies are called

We look forward to more next week!

Well on on our way!

I am so impressed with the inquirers in my classroom! Not only have them been posting questions, but they have also inquired on video tape for the Monday morning announcements. If you have cable, tune in to the Aquila channel to see our inquiries!

This week's task, using Skype... :)

One Month To Go...

With one month until I leave I am busy trying to figure out everything I will need for my expedition in Nova Scotia! We have been spending time in the computer lab on the Earthwatch website, reading about mammals and their adaptations, and navigating to my blog! This week our hope is to practice posting on the blog so when I am gone students are able to ask me questions. Next week I hope to practice using Skype!
