Did you happen to catch the two most recent episodes of Planet Earth last night? Shallow Seas and Great Plains were both remarkable. If you agree, it’s time to get your students and colleagues excited as well.
First, what better way to learn about the series than to hear from the producer herself? Join us on April 24 at 1 pm EST for a webinar with Dr. Penny Allen. Have your students post their questions to the blog in advance.
All the details re: the Planet Earth webinar can be found here.
Second, why not host your own Planet Earth party? With a little creativity you can even report it as an event to help keep your STAR status in the DEN. To help you get started, here are a couple images for your invitations as well as some special Planet Earth recipes.
Pole to Pole Chicken Skewers
Deep Ocean Party Punch
Update! As of 5 pm on Tuesday, April 10 we’ve had 31 STARs complete the quiz (10 of them got a 100%) with an average score of 78%. For those who only missed the golden eagle question and selected 200 mph, I’ll send you a DVD as well 🙂
Third, to add to your party, in preparation for the webinar, have your students (note: please preview it first) watch the Pole to Pole episode. If you need a copy of the DVD, just get a 100% on this Planet Earth quiz and we’ll mail you a copy (if you are one of the first ten STAR DEs to get a perfect score).
