Hallo Mary and members of the Journey North Teacher Network, It will be great to work with you. Mary, thanks for telling me about this group.
I live here in the Deep South of Africa, and I have been trying to identify projects for or students. This initiative is a great one! Our Junior Ranger Programme creates development opportunities for career development, and our students undertake research projects.
Greetings Adrian, Lovely to hear back from you. We are exploring in some new directions within the animal migration framework and would love to learn more about what you are doing with kids.
We also have a marvelous program called Mystery Class. Students go on a giant scavenger hunt finding 10 locations (schools scattered across the world). They are only given a series of sunrise/sunset times, and a few clues from the mystery class sites. Students then try to solve the puzzle. Perhaps you know of a school that would like to become one of our mystery sites this winter. Let me know. Here is more information: http://www.learner.org/jnorth/mclass/index.html
