Why do people use the expression, busy as a bee. Well, bees have a lot of work to do in order to pollinate plants to grow food.
I want you to meet my friend Zinger.
Zinger will be joining me on my trip to Morocco. Since it will be spring in Morocco in March, Zinger will be busy pollinating lots of flowers and learning all about the culture, environment, and lifestyles of the Morocco Look for her in my photos and see if you can find her.
I choose Zinger as my mascot because without bees, our planet will not have enough food to eat. Bees are an important pollinator. Many of the foods you love to eat are pollinated by bees. Many varieties of bees are at risk due to their hives dying out. Click on the highlighted words for more information on the importance of bees. We all need to become stewards of our Earth.
While I am in Morocco the almond trees will be in bloom. I hope Zinger can help pollinate a few trees while she's traveling.
Zinger will be seeing you soon.
I am going to travel to Morocco with a cohort from Teachers for Global Classrooms (TGC )in March of 2018.
As part of my fellowship with TGC, I will spend two and a half weeks learnings about the Moroccan culture, working in a classroom in Morocco and exploring how the Moroccan people are integrating global education into their instruction. I will be updating my blog often during my travel experience. I am hoping to have the students at Eagle Crest learn along with me by reading my blog and commenting on my posts.
During the fall, I completed 8 credit hours learning with the other cohort members online about global education and global competencies. I am excited to share my experiences with you.
