Four Ingredients of Learning Communities

Four Ingredients of Learning Communities | HCS Learning Commons Newsletter | Scoop.it
It is interesting how the greatest desires of our heart are elusive, seemingly the most significant challenges in our lives. We want to be in relationship, we want to create healthy families and homes, we want great schools and to be in healthy community, yet it can be terribly difficult.

Journey North

Journey North | HCS Learning Commons Newsletter | Scoop.it
Journey North is a free website that helps kids record and share observations about seasonal change. These observations vary from the length of a day to a flower blooming or the presence of a butterfly. Resources are available to help kids figure out their longitude and latitude so they can include it with their observations. This site can be used by any nature lover but is best for elementary or middle school students learning about ecosystems, life cycles, or the seasons.

Webcams of gray seals, osprey, puffins, polar bears, common terns, and brown bears are intended to let kids see how the seasons affect living things. However, during certain parts of the year, the webcams aren't live like when polar bears are out during their hunting season. For example, puffins are only on camera from May to July, when they're breeding. Teachers will need to take that into account in their planning or settle for recorded images. While this lack of live access demonstrates how behaviors change with the seasons, this may not be obvious to kids who are viewing taped footage from a different part of the year.
