Projects designed for ages 10-14

Coffeechug and his 4th and 5th grade students are working on a global project starting in January of 2013. The focus will be on bald eagles and perhaps eagles and raptors in general depending on how many classes sign up. This is our very own project and we are excited to try something of our own on a massive scale like this. This is open to middle schools as well.

Along the way my students will be doing various projects throughout the year to prepare for a bald eagle conference that we are going to host in our school. We will be streaming the event live on the internet. We are also in the process of trying to raise quail and have our own quail camera to share our experiment with the world.



A few online organizations that provide good quality projects and forums for teachers to connect are

1. http://www.epals.com - website provides projects aligned with standards, very thorough and detailed. What I like best about this site is the Teacher Forum where you can post what you are looking for and also find other options available. I find this aspect most useful.

2. http://www.iearn.org/ - another great organization with projects already created. I have not personally used this site as there is a fee involved, but I have talked with others who have used the site and were pleased.

3. __Kc3 Kids__: Student led collaboration video conferencing competition.

4. The Global Classroom Project - an online global projects community dedicated to enabling teachers and students to connect, share, learn and collaborate worldwide. Members are encouraged to join existing, or build their own projects. 2012-13 Wiki
