Green Monkey Rises Again

The Green Monkey project has officially started again for this year.  Eighth grade students started work on their solar experiments and investigations today and the 6th graders are in the planning stages for their business project.

Each student in the 8th grade has to complete a variety of tasks (individually or as part of a group) over the next couple weeks.  The tasks include: teaching a lesson about electricity to 4th graders, completing a solar or wind experiment with a partner, researching an area of alternative energy, and blogging about their daily activities.  Most of their work is being published on the Green Monkey Blog or the Energy Monkey wiki.

The students just started today and we’re trying to build as many followers as possible.  I’ll give more details on the tools we’re using to get this all accomplished in the coming weeks.
