3rd grade teachers in Georgia needed for collaboration project

Hi All,

I’m in need of some help from elementary media specialists in Georgia. I am collaborating with a third grade teacher on her Georgia Habitats unit. Our plan is to collaborate statewide with other third grade teachers to collect data for each habitat and we'll share the data on a wiki.

The standard addressed by this unit is:

S3L1. Students will investigate the habitats of different organisms and the dependence of organisms on their habitat.

a. Differentiate between habitats of Georgia (mountains, marsh/swamp, coast, Piedmont, Atlantic Ocean) and the organisms that live there.

b. Identify features of green plants that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia.

c. Identify features of animals that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia.

d. Explain what will happen to an organism if the habitat is changed.

I’m in charge of finding the teachers and creating the wiki, and my teacher will be coordinating the day to day aspects of gathering and posting information on the wiki with the other third grade teachers. Ideally, she’d like to begin this the week of September 7th (the 6th is a holiday for us). 

We’re in the Piedmont habitat, so we’d need a 3rd grade teacher from each of the other habitats (see standard above). If you have someone who may be interested this wiki project, please ask them to contact me directly. Your assistance is most appreciated! 

Thank you,
