10.10.10 One Day on Earth Project

Students! Don't forget about the 10.10.10 project this weekend! Remember, you MUST do the project on THIS SUNDAY, October 10th. You may do ANY of the projects in the packet I gave you today, but the ones with the stars next to them might be best suited for you. Use a photo camera or video camera to document your project/activities. Students going to the Race for the Cure on Sunday, be sure your electronic devices are CHARGED and ready to rock by tomorrow night.

I am so excited to see what you all create and have a feeling that I will be very proud of how enthusiastically you all embrace this amazing global project!

Off to the Biosphere 2... science is calling! Have a fun and safe weekend and DON'T FORGET ABOUT 10.10.10!!! :)
