  • Zach started his own nonprofit organization four
    years ago after a hurricane hit Florida. He asked
    his mother if they could donate their water
    bottles, and he gathered more from neighbors, an
    earnest little redheaded boy pulling his red
    wagon behind him. By the end, they had 27
    truckloads of aid.

16
  • Zach has met three presidents and was invited to
    President George W. Bush's farewell address this
    winter. Last night, he was scheduled to visit
    Elton John at his concert at Nationals Park and
    accept a 25,000 check. And an Emmy-award winning
    journalist, Michael Guillen, is making a 5
    million film about the Little Red Wagon.

E-mail from a teacher
  • Howie,
  • Thank you for keeping in touch. I have to share
    one thing that I have done this week. Out of all
    of the suggestions you shared last week I was
    most intrigued with the ePals program.  I
    immediately registered and posted a profile. I
    literally got goosebumps when I sent my first
    international email-----which was to Greece. Over
    the last few days I have heard back from schools
    in Japan, Germany, and Colombia.  I cannot even
    begin to tell you how excited my students are
    about this project! Thank you for telling me
    about it.  I will share more projects as we go.

What is "The Way We Are"?
  • http//www.epals.com/projects/thewayweare/This
    email project answers the following questions
    When I hear the name of a country, what is the
    first image that comes to my mind? When I meet
    and ask questions of someone from that country,
    what new information have I gathered about this
    country? What do I know about Canada's, and
    other country's, involvement in the development
    of that country? What is my new impression of
    that country, now that I have all of this
    information?

108
The Way We Are
  • What makes me who I am? In this project, students
    will engage in a collaborative learning
    experience. Through e-mail exchanges, students
    learn about the daily lives, cultures, climates
    and geography of children who live in other
    regions of the world.

Global Warming
  • How can we help to save our planet from global
    warming? In this project, students learn about
    the effects of global warming and ways to reduce
    its effects on our planet.  Through email
    exchanges, students collaborate on ways kids
    around the globe can make a difference.

Habitats
  • If a camel lived in a rainforest, would it still
    have a hump? In this project, students research
    habitats, and the animal and plant life within.
    Students will learn about  threats to habitat
    life, as well as unique qualities of each
    habitat. Email exchanges help students identify 
    differences between their own habitat and that of
    their ePals.

111
Maps
  • Why in the world would you need more than one map
    of the same location? In this project, students
    will learn to use three different types of maps
    (physical, climate, political) to gather
    information about where their ePals live.
    Students will participate in email exchanges
    focusing on how geographic location impacts their
    ePals' daily lives.

Natural Disasters
  • What do you do when the news warns of a big
    storm? In this project, students learn about the
    natural disasters of the world.  Through email
    exchanges, students will learn about natural
    disasters, where and under what conditions they
    are most likely to occur, particularly those
    natural disasters common in their ePals'
    location.

  • When is water good to drink?  In this project,
    students will research the world's water
    problems, focusing on how their personal water
    use affects aquatic ecosystems in their

Family Project "Me and My Family"
  • Early childhood activity gives each child the
    opportunity to share information about their
    family as well as themselves.
  • Materials A note sent home to parents.
  • Description Send a note home to the parents at
    least 1 week before you plan to begin sharing the
    posters, pictures, etc. Ask the parents to help
    their children put together a poster or a collage
    of family pictures for the children to share with
    the class. 
  • Have each child return their poster or collage to
    school on a different day to share with the
    class. Each child gets to stand up in front of
    the class and tell all about their poster,
    pictures or collage. They can answer any
    questions that the other children might have
    after sharing their information.
  • Comments This activity was WONDERFUL in helping
    to create self-esteem and confidence in these
    young children. They loved getting to stand up in
    front of the class and telling about their
    pictures, posters and collages. They liked having
    the other children ask questions about the
    pictures and sharing their own thoughts and
    memories of their pictures.

Art Activity Me and My Family Pictures
  • Lesson encourages self-awareness, self-identity,
    self-esteem and family relationships.  During
    this lesson children will use fine motor and
    representation skills.
  • You will need  Drawing paper, crayons, felt tip
    markers, a mirror (full length if possible)
  • Description Ask preschool children to look in
    the mirror and describe themselves, "What color
    is your hair?  How many eyes do you have?  What
    color are they?" etc.  Describe the clothes that
    you are wearing and then ask children to describe
    what they and their classmates are wearing. 
  • Next, ask children to draw pictures of themselves
    (remember that many young children will only be
    able to manage organized scribbling).  Say, "Tell
    me about your picture" and accept what each child
    tells you.  Label the pictures accordingly (eyes,
    nose etc.).  Some children may want to draw
    pictures of their families, friend and pets.
  • Let each preschooler help you write his/her name
    on their individual drawings or, if they can, let
    them write their own names. Some children will
    want to take their drawings home others may
    permit the teacher to put their picture on
    classroom display.
  • Vary this lesson throughout the year with
    drawings of relatives, friends, pets, home,
    neighborhood etc.
  • Teacher Tip Save a few examples of each child's
    drawings from the beginning of their preschool
    experience and place them in individual
    children's developmental portfolios.  Repeat the
    lesson a few times during the year and note the
    development of the children's fine motor and
    representation skills.

Preschool Multicultural Activities Passports
  • Promote multicultural awareness and self esteem
    with this early childhood education activity by
    Matina. Materials Paper and a camera.
  • Description We made passports by stapling white
    paper to construction paper. Then from January
    until May we studied a different country. We
    studied Russia, Africa, Ireland, Israel, China,
    Antarctica, Australia, Mexico, Japan, France,
    Hawaii, and Saudi Arabia. Then for each country
    the youngsters wore a hat or a prop from that
    country (ex France, beret). We took digital
    pictures of each child wearing his or her hat or
    prop. Then I glued the pictures into each child's
    individual passport and gave it to them along
    with a world traveler certificate at the end of
    the year.

Will you be the 10th person?
  • For every nine people who denounce innovation,
    only one will encourage it.
  • For every nine people who do things the way they
    have always been done, only one will ever wonder
    if there is a better way.
  • For every nine people who stand in line in front
    of a locked building, only one will ever come
    around and check the back door.
  • Our progress as a species rests squarely on the
    shoulders of that tenth person. The nine are
    satisfied with things they are told are valuable.
  • Person 10 determines for himself what has value.
