Michelle Kaufmann’s blog will inspire you to hug more than just trees. (NOTE: See next week’s Warmups for ideas inspired by my morning with her blog!)
In her April 21 post she shares a video describing ideas for observing Earth Day and invites video submissions of great ideas for celebrating the planet, recycling, not just for a once-a-year event such as Earth Day, but all year-long.
This is a energizing avenue for a real-world publishing experience for students (and their teachers!) Submit a message to Kaufmann’s site by June 1st giving your video link location (youtube, teachertube, personal upload, etc…). An eco-friendly Solio solar charger, serves as Grand Prize because, as Kaufmann writes, “we believe one brilliant green idea deserves another.”
