My organization, the National Youth Development Trust [NYDT] has set up an International Festival of the Sciences [IFS] and we would like to schedule interactive virtual participation by our local study group from Dr Sam Motsuenyane Secondary School with students from schools in other countries.

It falls in the period March 28 to April 9. This school is located in a disavantaged, under-resourced community, and the students have much to learn about the topic of emigration in Nature, and the technolgy used by Scientists to monitor and research it.

The students and their teacher [Mr Godfrey Lebepe] have to design projects in the field of Science, and it is important for them to communicate with educators and students in other countries

Hallo Mary!

Our schools here in South Africa will be starting next week.

I am now sending our information to schools about our international projects.

Are there any species that you wish to focus on for the migration project?

Teri, Love the tree idea. Your tree is perfect. Many teachers post on Journey North phenology project called Signs of Fall/Spring. Here is one sighting from Sheffield England: My name is Emily and I am 10 years old from limpsfield junior school and I have noticed the signs of autumn. I have found some conkers (from the horse chestnut tree). In England some children play a game with conkers, they make a hole in the conkers and thread a piece of string through and swing them back and break each others conkers. I have also found some leaves that are beautiful colours like red, orange, brown and green. The sun rose at 06:53 and will set at 19:02 today in Sheffield.
Please consider posting. Your comments go into database everyone can read through, and your location is marked on our maps for all to see.

I would like to create a place where we can monthly share what it looks like "outside our classroom window". Share actual photos of the same tree or landmark that will show the change in seasons. Also, give some basic monthly facts like the photoperiod, average high temp, average low temp, rain fall for the month. I created this page last week.
Then was lead to this page.Anyone interested?

I'm the Library Media Specialist at Johnson Elementary School, in El Paso, TX. I'm hoping to engage my Pre-K - 5th graders and their teachers in this view of the natural world and areas outside our border region.

Fall's Journey South is about to Begin!
Free Project Tracks Migrations, Plants, and Seasons

Teachers and students in K-12 classrooms are invited to sign up now for Journey North's 17th annual global study of wildlife migration and seasonal change. A free Internet-based citizen science project, Journey North enables students in more than 23,000 schools to watch the seasons unfold. Students monitor migration patterns of monarch butterflies, hummingbirds, whooping cranes, and other animals; the blooming of plants; and changing sunlight, temperatures, and other signs of the seasons.

What’s Happening this Fall?

Plant a Journey North Tulip Test Garden This Fall
It's time to dig in! This fall, plant a Journey North Tulip Test Garden so you can proclaim the official arrival of Spring 2011 in your community.

Track the Monarch Migration to Mexico
Join Us! Please Report Your Monarch Sightings! Report your own observations and track the monarch's trip to Mexico. Watch for weekly migration updates every Thursday, beginning August 26th.

Follow Whooping Cranes Led by Ultralights on Their First Journey
Year TEN in the historic conservation project to reintroduce Whooping cranes to eastern North America is nearing takeoff. Will all the chicks make the journey safely? What highlights and lowlights wait as they migrate through seven states in a journey over 1,000 miles?

Send a Monarch to Mexico!
Students across the United States and Canada send symbolic butterflies to Mexico each fall. Children in the sanctuary area protect the butterflies all winter and send them north in the spring. United by the monarch butterfly, children across North America learn lessons of conservation and ambassadorship.

Track Hummingbird Migration as a Citizen Scientist
You're invited to help track hummingbird migration this fall as the tiny migrants travel to and from their wintering grounds.

What Participating Teachers Say About Journey North/South

“Journey North makes it possible for my land-locked urban school to participate in worldwide, real-time science, geography, and cultural experiences that broaden our perspectives and unite us with other students and teachers.”

“In 26 years of teaching, this is the best program I have seen for integrating math, science, reading, and even social studies. It motivates students and gives them a chance to develop and use skills in a real world situation.”
“The kids remember all the prior geo concepts taught better as they use the skills during the JN project.”

Thanks to Annenberg Media, Journey North Web site access and participation is free. Check the Web site now; Journey South is about to begin!
