POST A WEATHER REPORT !

Fun project this month is for students to post a weather report. They can use observation skills - or an actual weather station. The easy-to-use online form is in our METEOROLOGY section accessible at

ARE YOU PLANNING A FIELD TRIP?

Camp classrooms are sending in news of their Winter/Spring field trips plans and are arranging time to post their field reports online to share their learning accomplishments and experiences with the Camp community. This week for example, Nightingale Middle School will be at the Outdoor School in the Angeles Forest. Others are planning trips to Yosemite and Anacapa Island. We are glad to offer suggestions for making the field trips the most rewarding possible - and - we always offer a technology component tie-in!!

FAMILY NIGHT INVITATION

Family History Projects start this month and culminate in February. See the invitation you can print for class or home distribution at the top of the Teachers Web main page. http://www.rain.org/pdf/family_history_project.pdf

REMEMBER TO POST STUDENT WORK THIS MONTH
