The first project to take place is our leaf exchange
project. In a nutshell, you will choose a preapproved tree
to pick leaves from. You will press them and glue them onto
cardstock 6x6ish paper. You will label the tree name and
state it came from. On the back you can (optional) tell
some facts about this specific tree and a little about your
classroom. I'm hoping to get at least thirty participants
from around the US to join this exchange. This will take
place in October 2010. I will include examples of what you
can do with your leaves when you get them and how you can
connect this project to your state standards.
The other project I have going is the postcard exchange
project. I still need one elem. teacher to represent KY.
You will need to get or make at least 49 postcards to send
to the remaining states in the US. (Not sure if I can get a
few other countries to participate yet or not.)
I will include ideas for this project that you can use in
your classroom if you so choose. Details will be coming as
to what you write, etc...
Are you interested in one of these, or both??
Let me know!
