amazing aquatic

"How can we better understand and preserve the water ecosystems in our area?"
      This is a collaborative project about the water and communities of living things we find in the freshwater lakes, rivers and streams;  the brackish water and salt marsh ecosystems of our Bay area wetlands and the saltwater environment found in the oceans off of the Bay Area coast.

This project involves a collaborative effort of three San Jose teachers and their classes.  As students are from different grade levels (2, 3 and 5), in different schools, and in different districts, this project was an example of continual collaboration.  The teachers and students extensively used email to communicate with the partnered classes.  The teachers also each had a Palm PDA to use as part of the project.
