The winter seems to have gone by so quickly. I feel a bit done-in by El Nino. We are already at the end of this project. I would like to thank all of you for your participation in creating a collaborative data set enabling each of the participating classroom to learn more about their own places. I hope this project provided meaningful learning opprotunities for your students.

Your assistance in completing the evaluation below would be very helpful us as we evaluate the project and make plans for the future. I'll bring together the results and post them for your information.Thanks for your assistance.
