Thanks to partnerships with the GLOBE Program, Discovery Education, and the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley, students are following SVVSD students and teachers while they make the trek to the tallest mountain in Africa's summit.
One of our fourth grade teachers was fortunate enough to travel to Japan this summer. Influenced by the trip, and wanting to share the experience with her students, Mrs. Urquidi set up a partnership with a teacher in Japan. Students will engage in a pen-pal experience this year, but with a STEM twist! To introduce the project, Mrs. Urquidi set up a Blendspace (a digital bulletin board platform).
Jean Reidy joined the 4th graders at Indian Peaks via Skype. They were brought together via the Skype in the Classroom program. The children's book author visited with students to share her 10 best tips for authors. She also took time to answer specific student questions.
