Hello, All,

This is a repeat request for a collaborative project about Vermont
Geography, grades 4,5 or 6.  I know some people said they wouldn't be
studying VT Geography until spring so now is the time!  Please use the
contact information below, preferably straight to Aimee Randall (
[log in to unmask])

I'm helping the 4th grade teacher who does the collaborative Vermont
Geography project again this year.  She would like to expand the network
and get more classrooms involved.

The project is called "Where in Vermont Are You?" It is done via Skype and
takes about 20 minutes.  The goal is for our students to communicate with a
class in each county of Vermont while learning Vermont geography.

Students from a fourth grade class at our end work on teams. One team asks
yes/no questions while other teams work with maps, Google Earth, and other
resources to narrow down and determine your location in Vermont. Preferably
the connection would be with a class where they are studying Vermont
geography, but it could be any grade 4, 5, or 6 class, or just a few
students.  It would be fun and a great learning experience for students at
your end to do the same thing ours are doing, but not necessary. Sorry we
don't have LNV at this location so our preferred, tested method is Skype.

Thanks for your help. Here are three ways to connect:
- contact me [log in to unmask]
- contact Aimee directly:  [log in to unmask]
- have your teachers sign up here:

I'll try to post some pictures and video of the project in action at the
site above in a day or two!

Thanks for your help!
