Connecting globally is so important in today's world but where does a teacher begin? Instead of being overwhelmed by the thought let Billy, Paula, and Jerry guide you through the process so not only your children connect with others but you do too. In the first pages of the book the reader finds building a relationship with an online community is important to the success of the project and social media is a great way to begin. One of the easiest ways to introduce connections is through Mystery Location Calls and the authors have given extensive coverage on how to make this a successful first venture into the global world.
Once you have become familiar with Mystery Location Calls Billy, Paula, and Jerry help you build a solid program with seasonal projects you can easily adapt to your curriculum. If you're thinking "but I need to follow the Common Core State Standards" you will find them listed along with ISTE Standards and Next Generation Science Standards so you projects become a creative way to cover what is necessary for your grade level. There are also Notes and Resources to give you additional ideas on how to enhance each project to make it fit the needs of your students.
Billy, Paula, and Jerry are seasoned educators who are passionate about their craft. This book is a reflection of the outstanding educators they are and will continue to be.
