Subject: BIRD MIGRATION WATCH
Bird Migration Watch
[Multiple grade levels; Special Event Oct. and March]
Contact: Judson Elliott or Nick Barber (email@example.com)
Bird migration makes for an interesting and educational experience. Students can record their observations about the birds in their area and post the results for others to compare and read. Two special weeks are set aside as concentrated bird watching sessions in October and in March. During the remainder of the year postings can be made on observations from home or school. Special files on birds, bird migration, and the hobby of bird watching are available for on-line research.
After reading your forwarded posting on the Bird Migration, I realized this may be a good project for DeafKids. Perhaps some kids from different parts of the world or even just the U.S. could discuss which birds are in their area at different times. Then, they could map out the migration of birds from south to north in America and even in Europe and the Far East/Australia, etc.
Other ideas for use of DeafKids to get the kids working with each other could be just to map out the changing foliage in different parts of the world. As we enter Fall, we in the northern areas are already seeing some changes even though it's only summer here. What about the Winter in the Southern Hemisphere ?
By getting kids on line and sharing, they will eventually share of themselves through DeafKids.
