I sure wish I had thought to post this sooner. Edmodo and Polar Bears International teamed up this week on a series of webcasts from the sub-arctic. Participating in a live webcast with real scientists is a great way to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). If your classes study animals, habitats, ecosystems, climate, or human impact on the planet these webcasts are a great resource. Although they have already taken place, the archives can be found on their website. Tundra Connections Archive They also have a really great game that can be played to reinforce the challenges facing the Polar Bears in the Hudson Bay/Churchill area. It is called Polar Bear Trek.
If you missed the live webcasts and want to participate live, mark your calendar for next fall right about this same time. This is an annual event.
