Classroom Challenge: The Pot Has Been Sweetened

Susan, the “mommy” being supported by Team Why Mommy has offered the most AMAZINGLY COOL donation for the winners of our classroom challenge. Here, I’ll just cut and paste her magical words from the comment, where they are not nearly as visible as they should be:

This is a great idea!  If you need a prize for the winning classroom, I can offer this:  A 4 foot x 3 foot photo printout of the Martian landscape taken by the Mars rovers, a packet of solar system lithographs, and a special video conference call (or audio, if the school doesn’t have a webcam) with two NASA scientists.  We’ll give a talk and answer questions from the winning class.  Sound like fun?

Good luck to everyone!
Susan (WhyMommy from Toddler Planet)

So? Any takers? If your classroom would like to participate in this challenge, please leave us a comment or drop us an email. All information about the classroom challenge will soon be moved to a separate page, with a tab at the top for finding it.

  1. Holy cow! That is the coolest prize ever!

  2. We know!!! Please share with any teachers you may know…..

  3. Yesterday, I went to Orange Soda 2000’s (http://orangesoda2000.wordpress.com) computer classroom to help with their project. We went to the Lindbergh Elementary website and found a link to letssaythanks.com We typed our own personal messages or holiday greetings to soldiers and Xerox will print them out on a postcard (using the design of our choice) to send to the soldiers. All 23 students in the class sent a message. Once we finished our postcards, we went back to your blog and found freerice.com . Many of the children played the word game to donate rice. We all had a lot of fun and learned a lot about blogs too!

    Thanks for giving us the idea and opportunity to do good, have fun, and learn a little something in the process.

  4. That is a big prize so I will brainstorm with my students to figure out a way to help make a difference. This is such a great idea. I am so proud of you. And I don’t even know you.
