Hello 5th grade Parents,
I want to start off by saying how glad I am to be back at work with your students. I missed them all SO much! The next few weeks are going to go by super fast because we are super busy learning. That is one of the reasons for the email. We need your help.
We are working on a project in class over Changes to the Earth's Surface. Within this project, students are taking on the role of geologists who were asked to help develop a plan for preparation to the community to reduce flooding thinking about various land forms caused by weathering, erosion, and deposition caused by wind and water. Students have and will learn about the various land forms in the community caused by past flooding, as they move through the project. Students have collaborated with a local college geology professor/geologist via video chat using Voki (a web program), interview local community members affected by the flooding, and engage in research to reach their findings. In teams, they will present their recommendations to a panel of experts, Chamber of Commerce members, local businesses (for donation/buy-in), parents, and classmates. Here is where we need YOUR help!!! If you know of anyone who was impacted by the flood that would be willing to come in and interview with us, or interview via email, video chat, or phone, PLEASE let us know so that we can get this done for our project. We are looking to interview Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday if needed. Please let me know if you or the person you know is available any of these days.
