Discovery is a word full of such promise; whether I’ve discovered a treasure trove of free lessons and activities, an amazing new app for identifying plants and animals, or the missing purple sock behind the dryer, discoveries are almost always fun.
What’s one thing you’ve discovered recently that made you happy? Submit a comment to this blog to share and you’ll have a chance to win the Discovery Globe Kit (Candlewick Press). With this build-your-own-globe kit, you and your junior explorers will learn about all kinds of places and people around the world. Submit your comment by Thursday, March 5. One lucky teacher will discover that she or he has been randomly selected to win! Congratulations to our winner Traci!
