Tracker's Travels (classroom #02)

How does it work? A few weeks before GoNorth! Greenland 2010 began, all registered teachers received a Polar Husky Alert about Trackers 2010 Classroom Expedition. Interested teachers then entered their name into a drawing. We printed-out the name of every teacher who registered and put all those names into Tracker's travel  bag.  We then randomly selected 14.

Check back every day M-F to see where Tracker is & what she is doing in the classroom. It's going to be a howlin' fun adventure!

After a long weekend of Travel, Tracker arrived at New Hope Elementary after her class had already gone home for the day.

She is going to go to bed early tonight so that she is rested-up and ready for the arrival of her classmates Tuesday morning!

Tracker picked a great day to arrive. It's Read Across
America day as well as Dr. Seuss's birthday.

It's a bit warmer here than Minnesota but a bit cold
for us! There is even a chance for a little snow tonight!
A rare sight for us this close to spring! Maybe
Tracker brought it with her.

We did get a little snow early this morning! Because of this, we had a 2 hour delay :-). By the time we got to school almost all of the snow was melted. Tracker thought this was funny! We explained to her that since we get so little snow, (some years none at all) we are not prepared when it does come. It is not economically smart for us to spend money on equipment that might get used. This year though we have gotten 3 snow falls! The one snowfall we had a couple weeks back was even enough to build snowmen!

We can't believe our time with Tracker is almost over. The children have been so excited each day to share what they learn with her. Our polar animal projects are almost done. Listen to Gabe share how his albatross was made.



   Watch Gabe as he tells us about how he
   made his Albatross!
