The Kids in a Year Project

I created a project for teachers.

The project:
    To create 12 pages with pictures about kids from around the country and what activities they like to do by the month.  This project can help build connections with other classrooms around the country.   It is totally done on the Internet.  No snail mail.  Only cost to the participants would be the printing of PDFs if you want.  Project can be used totally on the Internet to share with our classes.  
Details of the project:
     Find 11 different  teachers who are each willing to create one page (month) about what kids like to do at that location in that month. 
     Each of the 11 teachers can send in a picture for the July page to show what kids do during this month across the country. 
    Teachers will be assigned a month.
    My goal is to have 11 different locations.
    It must have real photographs of kids doing an activity.  It can have one or more photographs but no more than 5.
   Pictures can be creative and have captions.  Old pictures from your own archives can be used like I did with the snow pictures.  It was 94 degrees in Vermont today.
   You may add a class picture to your page.
   The text should follow the pattern set up on the January Page.
   All pages must be 8x11 and have the portrait orientation.
   Extra information can be written on a second page.
   The page must be made into a PDF and stay in color for printing.
   All pages will be posted on a Google page for easy access for our group. 
   All PDFs and July pictures should be sent to   by September 30, 2012.
   Links can be created to post to our blogs and web pages so the world can view our work.
   All pages must be created by September 30, 2012.
Please leave me a comment with your name, your location, your email, and blog addy if you have one.
