Global School Net is one website that connects us with a world wide community of learners.
We get to chat, email, blog and speak by satellite phone or Skype live to the expert explorers we are following.
inquire about their journey
make health suggestions that may help them
research data for ourselves and post our findings
track their journey
do related science experiments
make movies of our learning
journal our daily activities
write 'Dreaming' stories about space
learn about the planets
create our own virtual space world
engage in moon investigations and problem solving through simulations
report back and talk generally about the explorations
relate it to our world
Each students creates their own blog page of all their questions, answers, pictures, discoveries and other investigations they take part in along the way.
They then attach these to home base. This blog. You will get to share our journey as well by joining in discussions, watching student debates and experiments and add your posts commenting on your children's learning. Enjoy!
