Hello Sault Ste. Marie

Regina, SK to Sault Ste. Marie, ON

This past Friday I connected with another one of my ECMP Mentorhips!  This one is with Mike Poluk from Sault St. Marie, Ontario.  This is my only mentorship within Canada, but is by no means close to me.  Sault St. Marie is some 1500 kms away from Regina.

I quickly introduced myself to his class before they headed outside for a project.  They were quite surprised that we had snow already!

The class just created a Project Earth Homes (inspired by this blog) where they were split into groups and given half of an hour to gather 25 natural objects and build an earth home (perhaps inspired by earth houses I found on Wikipedia).  Mr. Poluk has created a video of the creations which can be seen here.

This week the class is setting up blogs and learning about blogging etiquette.  I’m excited to see what kind of blogs the students come up with.

I will also be using Skype once again to interact with the class this Friday! I can’t wait!

  1. Wow, Thats awesome! What grades are you doing your mentorship with? If this is your only class in Canada, where are your other classes? As for you using Skype, I think that is really cool. How do you find it to use?

    1. My mentorship for this one is with students in grades 5/6. My other classes are in Michigan, Florida, and China. I’ve begun the ones in the USA (there is a previous post about them) and I haven’t been able to get in contact with my mentor in China, so that’s at a standstill right now.

      I find Skype super easy to use. I’ve had it freeze up a few times, but for the most part it’s been really good. It’s been a great tool so far!
