My class is going on a voyage to the Galapagos Islands!*

*The experience will be virtual, but my fellow 7th grade science teacher and I have been approached to have our classes pilot an e-learning module developed by WestEd which has students go on a virtual scientific expedition to the Galapagos Islands.  They are to travel from island to island, taking pictures of iguanas from around the islands, looking for different variations, and measuring them in the virtual lab.  I have another training with them in January to find out what else my students will do with the data that they collect and how it ties to evolution, but this is going to be cool!
