Hello from New Mexico!
Do you know any 4th-6th grade teachers who would be interested in a "high-tech pen pal" collaboration to learn about important water resources issues? Please feel free to forward this information to anyone you think might be interested.
WANTED: "High-Tech Pen Pals"
We are looking for 4th-5th grade classes who are looking for partners to exchange information about rivers and their watersheds!
We have a year-long curriculum called RiverXchange where students learn about rivers, watersheds, stormwater, municipal water supplies, ecology, and conservation.
We are looking for other students who are interested in water issues that would like to communicate with our students through a private blogging website called kidblog. We provide training and support to ensure a successful experience. Through writing and creative sharing about rivers, we integrate science with language arts, social studies, and 21st-Century learning skills, all correlated to Common Core Language Arts Standards!
Check out our public website, www.RiverXchange.com, for more information and to access the registration form. I'd love to hear from you if you have any questions about the program.
This is a great opportunity for teachers who already enjoy your programs to take water resource education to the next level by doing even more hands-on lessons and exchanging information with other students in the arid southwest.
If you are interested, please reply to Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time,
Jenny Lloyd-Strovas, Ph.D.
