What might that mean to a group of keen, inquisitive grade 3 students in the Comox Valley?
It might be becoming involved in the postcard project we talked about in the last post or it could be following the adventures of Snail and Whale as they tour many classes around the world. It could also be hosting Snail and Whale here in the Valley and share their adventures with other classes through our blog and possible Skype sessions. A class from New Zealand – Ins and Outs – has begun this project and has graciously signed us on to be a host. Below is the information from their class blog.

The idea comes from the picture book called ‘The Snail & The Whale’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. In the story the snail longs to see the world and hitches a ride on the back of the whale.
Throughout the project we will be following the snail and whale’s journey by blogging and skyping the host classes. So far I have 15 classes around the world keen to be a host class. Exciting!
