Studying Polar Bears in the Arctic

My students and I had a treat this week. We were able to participate in an international webcast that was broadcast from the Arctic. They thought it was so cool to see scientists live. The second day we watched, the scientists answered some of our questions that we sent to them via ichat (in the moment). They also acknowledged our school and said hello to my fourth graders. My fourth graders were stunned. I think that they did not know the meaning of, "LIVE". It was a fantasitic experience and I really hope that I can find another program like it. It was well worth it!! The blog that is written is also incredibly fascinating! Check it out!!
