To The Polls!

It feels like forever since I've posted anything here. I blog almost every day, but it's all over on my teacher blog. I really need to write more on this one, however. It's a good place for me to process what I'm doing in my job and share ideas with my wonderful PLN.

Today, however, I'm going to ask for help from my PLN. In the last 24 hours, I have created two very different polls. If you're reading this, my seventh graders and I would love your help in gathering some information.

My seventh graders and I recently returned from a week-long trip to Camp Caritas in Northern California. I asked them to create Google Doodles based on their camp experience and what they turned in to me was amazing! I knew right away that we needed to do something more with these pictures. So, I've created a poll and am asking you, gentle reader, to choose your two favorite Doodles. I warn you...it is most definitely NOT easy! Here's the link: Great Google-y Moogly.


Our second project that we could use your help with involves National Geography Week. If you wouldn't mind answering a few questions, could you please take our survey about where you live? We'll be taking the information we gather and plotting it in a Google Map (the kids don't know that yet). National Geography Week Survey.

I'll be sure and share the results with everyone when we complete our projects. Thank you so much for your help. I don't know what I would do without my PLN!!
