Jordan High School Teacher Kelly Meade, who participated in a National Geographic educational expedition to Antarctica nearly two years ago, is packing her bags for another epic journey. She’ll head back out with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions, this time to the Galapagos Islands in December. She plans to share this expedition by making the experience digitally live for classroom instruction during her journey. Educators can sign up here.
Meade also is hosting a National Geographic Educator Certification Phase 1 Workshop (a helpful tool for Single Subject Integration) 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9 at Jordan. Educators can sign up here.
As a member of the collaboration team with National Geographic Explorers and Educators to create California EcoBlitz, Meade is looking for colleagues to participate. The EcoBlitz is an opportunity for students to work with National Geographic Explorers and other classrooms throughout California. An EcoBlitz allows students to identify the biodiversity that exists in their community and compare it with the quantity and types of trash within the same area. Evaluation of the two types of data helps to determine environmental impact.
