We are a rural library, with a large patron population of homeschoolers. Many of them come to our library to do their online work, so doing TTW will be a challenge and very exciting thing. Not being overly tech savy myself doesn't improve things!! I love Google Earth! So I am planning a Google Earth Scavenger hunt. I will compile a list of things for them to look for, not just in our hometown. Things like what date and time did they map our town, finding their own house, finding national landmarks. I am pretty excited about this! We do not offer the e books at our library, so I will also be introducing them to that through the State Library Card. I would love any ideas or comments any of you may have.
That sounds like a great idea! I'm also in a rural county and trying to find little things that student with computer access can do (and that will teach them in the process). This is also something funt hat they may be able to do at school. Cool! Thanks for sharing.
Since we are concentrating on writing at our school, I am holding an essay contest on innovations that can improve the world in some way. The innovations must be unique (electronic, mechanical, sustainable) and not in exsistence. Grand prizes will include an eReader! Hope I can pull this off...
For anyone interested, I have attach a copy of my scavenger hunt list. I had an awesome time putting it together.
Sorry. Here's the answer sheet for the scavenger hunt.
Awesome-thanks so much!
Lisa-I'd love to use the scavenger hunt next week-thanks for sharing it! Do you have the answers that I could use? -Rebecca Ekstrom, middle school librarian
