Online GPS Course this Saturday
So one of my favorite new resources is coming out of this NASA class I am taking. Teachers from all over the country are sharing their backgrounds and connections with each other, and we have just added a place on our page to share events like this. I know this is coming up in just 2 days, but I wanted to share anyway. I might be able to fit it in myself. How fun! You know I like to letterbox, but I am not really confident using GPS in lesson plans.
