Thanks Donna!! I would like to share with you this recent experience that my kids just went through. We had the visit of a project called Atlantic Rising who are visiting schools around the Atlantic Ocean to raise awareness about climate change. They started their trip in sept. 2009 from England and visited México last month, right now they are in the US near Florida... its been an amazing experience for the entire school. Hope you like it!
I simply LOVED your links!! I´m thinking on how to use it with my kids, I teach science to middle school and they did an individual documentary video (4min) last year about our trip to Veracruz, so this is quite easy for them to do and they enjoy it the most. They all have ipods, iphones or blackberries so I am thinking in using their devices in class maybe to do reviews about topics or maybe introductions to chapters or something.

Thus, students who were lucky enough to have compassionate teachers growing up have been trainedto develop gratitude and compassion. These…See More
