Below are two items I found in a recent Discovery Education mailing. Holiday Collaboration is one in a series of new events enabling you to connect your class with other classes around the world.
In the White House- Honoring our troops, you can send a message to the members of our armed forces. On the USO form, it does require email- perhaps for your students, you might want to use your address. I did a test with a fake email address and it looked like it sent.
Discovery Education – Holiday Collaboration:
Celebrate the holidays with the 4C’s by collaborating and communicating to other classrooms from around the world! This year Discovery Education has teamed up with GlobalLabs to bring you a collaborative project allowing classrooms to examine their favorite holidays and invent new ways to celebrate people, places, things, and events they love.
White House – Honoring our Troops:
This year’s White House holiday decorations pay homage to our men and women of the military. Send a digital message of gratitude to our active duty service men and women. The USO will share your message with our heroes through their centers around the world where our uniformed men and women are currently deployed. Have your students send a message now at www.uso.org/holiday-form.
