Skype Conversation

We just had our first Skype conversation with the class in Georgia. They could see and hear us fine, and although we could see them, we couldn't hear them . . . ugh! We still enjoyed our visit and saw some interesting books that we want to read! They were nice enough to tell us the authors of some of the book when we asked!

New PBL Activity!

The Aquarium:
Your class will be getting a 30 gallon aquarium. The class will have $25.00 to spend on fish. You will plan which fish to buy. Use the Choosing Fish for Your Aquarium brochure to help you select the fish. The brochure tells you things you must know about the size of the fish, how much they cost, and their special needs. Choose as many different fish as you can. Write a letter explaining the fish you chose.
